Ever since it was first held in 2002, the Ateneo Fine Arts Festival has been a space where the hard work and passion of their Senior Fine Arts students have come to life. Here’s what’s waiting for you on the festival’s last day.
3 Awesome Things that are Waiting for You at the Ateneo Fine Arts Festival
3. CHAPBOOKS GALORE!
The Creative Writing Seniors of the university are selling their chapbooks (small books for your convenience!)—and there’s something here for everyone!
Are you into poetry that touches on discrimination in the LGBT community? Check!
Are you looking for essays you can relate to? You can get that too!
How about fiction that deals with family drama? Here you go!
All this and so much more (like science fiction and high fantasy for all you SF readers!), is waiting for you at the festival!

Chapbook prices range from Php100 to Php250. They also have readings of their works from 5PM to 6PM.

People often believe that design is just that: design. However, the exhibit shows how intertwined design is to other fields by showing you apps and websites Information Design seniors made for their thesis.
Are you looking to buy a used car, but aren’t that familiar with the Internet landscape? They have a solution for you here.
If you’re aiming to get informed on coral reefs, there’s no need to look any further!
