CAL community gets in on the ground floor with Pagtutulong Theme for 2014 Float

Report by Jill Raz

The start of December heralds the sight of several students in front of the College of Arts and Letters (CAL) Library, busy working on the college’s float for 2014’s fiesta-themed University Lantern Parade, with the slogan Pasundayag: Pag-uugat at Pagyabong.

The float, from a design proposed by Sir Jeff Giron of the Art Studies Department, consists of three children playing palo-sebo, where they stand on each other’s shoulders to reach the banderita on top of the pole. According to Art Studies representative and project head Jessy Tan, this is in accordance with Apolinario Mabini’s decalogue “… [tungkol sa] pagtutulong.

Recycled materials, such as recycled bond paper like old readings and papers, corrugated board, colored slide folders, and cardboard boxes shall be used to realize this design. The usage of recyclables is a factor in the criteria for judging.

Attendance from various organizations is required, and in the event that the college wins the 25,000 peso grand prize, the organization with the most attendees will be rewarded.

So far, the planned pakulo this year is a T-shirt design contest won by Art Studies student Rissa Lucero, and something else Tan says will evoke “super fiesta feels.” Additionally, she also credits the college’s long-time lantern technician, Kuya Nap Rivera, for his guiding hand in the production work.
