Exhibitions and Events

We encourage exhibitions and events from UP academic units and alumni who seek to promote social awareness and the enrichment of the academic community. For more information on the kind of exhibitions and events that we hold, please see our Exhibitions Archive.

For groups outside of UP Diliman, we encourage partnerships with UP units or offices. We have held exhibitions with the UP Center for International Studies in partnership with the Japan Foundation for “Human Seascape”, and the UP College of Home Economics in partnership with the¬†Goethe Institut for “Fast Fashion”.

For photo shoots and filming, please see the guidelines from the UP Office of the Vice Chancellor for Community Affairs.

The BnD also caters to academic and artistic events with an audience of 100 to 150 people. Classified under academic events are lectures and workshops; for artistic events, recitals and small performances (such as one-act plays).
