Viva Manila: Car-Free Pasyal Sundays


The Walking Labyrinth Project

The project explores the role of citizen participation in shaping urban environments. Each labyrinth is an interactive, temporary installation. Panels cut from recycled shipping pallets are black canvases for participants to express themselves however they wish. Seen below are children painting their ideas.

All in all, no matter how burnt I was after the unique festivities, all that they did was uplift my Filipino spirit. Deep down, I was telling myself, “Damn, our culture is just too awesoomeee! “. I am so proud to say that there are Filipinos who just won’t give up and will just keep upholding and showing how captivating our heritage is with pride.

As they say: we live in the city to freely express ourselves; be heard and be empowered. The city is ours – let’s enrich it!
