ALIM, the extension arm of the Creative Writing Program, realized its plan to give another Arts for Healing session to the drug surrenderees in Barangay Pasil last Saturday, March 3, 2018. This time the activity was on Writing Shorty Story for Healing which was held at the same venue of the past two Alim activities, the Don Bosco Youth Training Center.
In the scheme of the ALIM program, Writing Story for Healing is the second activity to be given to the target clients, the Pasil surrenderees who are also members of the Narcotics Anonymous. Fourteen out of the thirty-five target participants came. Yolanda, NA’s coordinator, informed Alim that some NA members went to the beach while the rest went to work.
Nine Alim members: six faculty from CCAD namely, Jason Baguia, Belinda Espiritu, Jocelyn Pinzon, Lilia Tio, Palmy Tudtud, Januar Yap; and three guidance specialists of UP Cebu – Annabelle Maglasang, Annie Aboga, and Cip Olita – conducted the session with Prof. Lilia Tio and Palmy Tudtud serving as Resource Persons. They translated two stories from into Cebuano and read expressively these stories to the participants. This was followed by the distribution and simple explanation of 3 Basic steps in the writing of a story where some cues were provided. The participants were then divided into groups of two, and the Alim members distributed themselves to the nine small groups created to serve as facilitator and guide in the writing of the participants’ stories.
An hour later and after taking their snacks which Alim provided, they went back to the plenary group and were invited to read their story voluntarily, sans pressure. Several participants eagerly read and shared their personal stories. It was observed that in the process of sharing, they even abandoned their notebooks and proceeded to share their story orally.
The session closed with a post-activity evaluation by the drug surrenderees who expressed their gratefulness to the UP faculty and guidance counselors who came to be with them for the afternoon. One wrote the following on the comments section: “Salamat sa paghatag ug tabang. Daghan ko ug nakat-unan”. (Thank you for giving us help. I learned much”.) Another wrote: “Nagpasalamat ko sa Ginoo gusto ko nga lig-on ang akong kinabuhi”. (“I thank God, and I want that my life is steadfast”.) Another expressed what he learned in the following manner: “Sa akong ika sulti ngg aduna ko’y nakat-onan sama sa pagsuwat ug nindot nga pagpaminaw ug nakapabuhagay sa gibati bahin sa akong pagkaadik”. (I can say that there are things I learned like writing and listening well and expressing what I felt about having been a drug addict”.) Another wrote about his desire that the UP Alim activities go on in this way: “Mom!! Sa inyong mga activity gusto ko nga magsigi kini para magkita ta pirmi ug daghang salamat. God bless us!!!” (Mom!! Regarding your activities, I want these to continue so we will see each other always and thank you very much. God bless us!!!”)
Palmy Tudtud gave the inspirational closing remarks.
After the activity, the Alim members had a debriefing of their experiences and personal insights from their close encounter with the drug surrenderees in small groups. As a whole, the Alim members shared on what they observed, felt, and learned from the whole experience, saying that they were enriched and healed as well.

2018 Women’s Month Celebration


NUDI Exposed: A Solo Art Exhibit by Prof. Yvette Malahay-Kim for Marine Conservation

This gallery contains 12 photos.

Prof. Yvette Malahay-Kim’s solo art exhibit entitled “NUDI Exposed” reflects the artist’s fascination with the colors and diversity of the Philippine underwater ecology and her advocacy to conserve and protect the marine resources of the Philippines. In retrospect, Prof. Yvette Malahay Kim’s colorful art exhibit which lasted from January 18 up to February 12, 2018 was a tribute to the colors and shapes of the small underwater creatures known as the nudibranch, or sea slugs, with its different types or species. In Prof. Yvette’s own words: “What drew me to this creature was the colors and the shapes it possessed. In my studies of color, I can see clearly the various color theories applied”.
Her art works were reflective of what Prof. Raymund Fernandez termed as “Sugbuanon Realism”, or Cebuano Realism, which “ought to remove itself from the retinal and photographic picture: Life as our eyes or the camera see it, and move into the deeper reality of: Life as can be seen only with the mind’s eye, the imaginative eye. And truly, the issues of meaning and purpose will be pivot points for this emerging “Sugbuanon Realism.”
Prof. Malahay-Kim has expressed “meaning and purpose” in her art works in magnifying the wonderful and fascinating small sea creatures known as the nudibranch, by painting them realistically in large canvasses, in effect magnifying her diver friends’ underwater photos of these colorful, multi-shaped creatures. Even small creatures under the sea are wonderful and fascinating to behold in their colorful patterns and shapes – truly a play in colors and an expression of wonder, delight, and awe at, if I may say it, God’s handiwork, God’s artistic creation.
It was an art exhibit that educated and informed the audience on the existence of the tiny, colorful creatures under the Philippine seas known as the nudibranchs, which exist along with the magnificent corals, sea fishes, and other sea creatures. It was a vivid way of advocating to conserve our marine resources and to protect our seas from climate change and overfishing, from plastic pollution and waste disposals in our seas.
Photos from the opening of the art exhibit and the paintings of the different species of nudibranch themselves are shown below.

The ALIM Art-Life Group consisting of faculty members from the College of Communication, Art & Design (CCAD) and Guidance Services Specialists conducted an extension activity entitled “Communicating Life Stories of Change and Journal Writing for Healing” at the Don Bosco Youth Training Center in Barangay Pasil, Cebu City last February 3, 2018 from 1:30 to 5:30 in the afternoon. The extension activity is part of an extension program that will last from five to six months about teaching and learning different forms of art for healing and recovery of drug surrenderees. This extension program was formed as the output of the creative writing seminar-workshop held last December 6 to 7, 2017, on Poetry for Healing, expanded into Art for Healing.
In the said seminar-workshop with Prof. Vim Nadera of the UP Diliman Creative Writing Center as the resource speaker, a group of faculty members from CCAD, three guidance services specialists, and two librarians formed a group which they named as the ALIM Art-Life for Healing with the goal of teaching different art forms to members of the Narcotics Anonymous (N.A.) care of the Sto. Niῆo Parish in Pasil. The word “alim” is Cebuano for healing, so it is most fittingly chosen as the group’s name. The different art forms identified by the ALIM members to be taught and experienced by the N.A. members are journal writing, short story writing, visual arts, theater, music, photography, and film making. ALIM is headed by Prof. Lilia Tio, the chair of the Creative Writing Program of UP Cebu.
The ALIM group organized its first extension activity with a Christmas Party for 35 members of the Narcotics Anonymous (N.A.) in Pasil last December 9, 2017. The second activity was the one held last February 3, 2018 which was attended and participated in by 15 members of Narcotics Anonymous (most of the N.A. members already found jobs so they were not able to come) who first watched a video from 700 Club Asia about the story of a former drug addict whose life was changed when he turned earnestly to God in prayer, through the advice of his sister, to help him overcome his drug addiction. He then became a pastor ministering to the youth, especially those involved with drug addiction.
After watching the video, the participants were then grouped into five with three participants each plus a facilitator (or facilitators) from the ALIM group. In the small groups, they were asked to talk about themselves, their turning points, and their journey to recovery. After the group discussions, snacks were served followed by a lecture on journal writing by Prof. Belinda F. Espiritu and Prof. Jason Baguia. The N.A. participants were then asked to write or draw on their journals individually using the notebooks, ballpens, and colored crayons provided by the ALIM group. Then the participants went back to their small groups with their facilitators to share about what they have written and/or drawn on their journals. Assembling again as a large group, the ALIM facilitators asked the participants to share what they have experienced, enjoyed, or learned from the whole afternoon with the ALIM group. Four participants stood up who expressed that they were grateful for the presence of the UP faculty and reps, for the activities they have engaged in for the whole afternoon, and for the growth towards healing that the afternoon’s program have wrought into them. The post-activity evaluation was very good to excellent, and a few wrote down comments that they were grateful to the UP facilitators for the help towards full healing and recovery of their physical, mental, and spiritual health.
