KURIT-LAGTING

Kurit-Lagting is an art organization that incorporates almost all artistic disciplines in teaching the creation, production, and presentation of the arts. It is a collective artistic collaboration of individual artists and interdisciplinary writers envisioning to be an important part of the community art scene in Sorsogon. Through art education and practice as its primary objective as a group, this group also aspires to cultivate the innate or emergent potentials among Sorsoganons in the arts. By utilizing the different forms of the arts, Kurit-Lagting as an art organization believes that Visual Literacy through Art Education is one of the key elements in bringing up social welfare to educate individuals and families in the community. This mobile art education program includes teach-ins, film showings and workshops such as creating and assisting livelihood projects for low income local parents especially mothers, organizing art-related activities for adolescent peer groups and assisting with the long term developments of an Art Therapy project which rehabilitates and empowers children previously working in the streets in Bicol especially in Sorsogon as beggars and vendors and others who suffered traumatic experiences in life.
