Sulyap sa Quiapo at Casa Consulado

Last August, the 125th anniversary of all-steel church, San Sebastian Basilica was celebrated through its weeklong festival, the Q-festival. Casa Consulado Museum and Library participates by hosting, in partnership with Kapitbahayan sa Kalye Bautista atbp, Inc., a lecture series entitled, “Sulyap sa Quiapo” (A Glance of Quiapo). This was also an opportunity to invite long time and fellow community advocates that has helped shaped Filipino culture and Quiapo community for the better, and to share again their stories and messages about their passion.

“Simula ng Maharlika Life” (The Beginning of Maharlika Life) by Mr. Ian Lucero

Young and creative local artist Mr. Ian Lucero, lead of Maharlika Life, was invited to share his passion for Filipino culture and the pre-hispanic colonial language, “Baybayin”. In the current trend of renewed interest in English calligraphy, his approach of presenting Baybayin with his creativity and graphic skills is as interesting even for the “cool” seeking youth or plain adventurous minds. Behind his passion is a movement to ignite interests for Filipino culture and pride starting from his social circle and eventually branching out to other communities. Inspired by Lucero’s previous experiences with Japanese calligraphy, the newly established group, Maharlika Life can be expected in public through their exhibits and creative enterprise.
