Community radio 2BOB 104.7 FM Cultural Collective is showcasing the Philippines at their 'Show and Tell Exhibit' on Thursday, February 25 from 8am at the Secret Market in Macquarie Street, Taree.
Activities include a showing of the film Mountains of Water: The Terraces and Traditions of the Ifugao and children's storytelling. An array of 'everything Filipino' will be on display.
Books of pictures featuring Philippine sceneries, traditions and life in the Philippines will be on display for people to browse or read.
"With the interest of most of us turning to gadgets over books, 2BOB's Show and Tell Exhibit hopes to achieve a renewed interest in getting back to the good old habit of reading and savouring that experience of being transported into a different dimension through the power of imagination brought about by reading. Simply put, reading is like experiencing paradise in words and silence," Tess Spinks of 2BOB said.
