    Lakad Gunita 2019 Walking Tours

    Last updated: Feb. 20, 2019, 3:27 a.m.

    The upcoming UP Diliman Arts and Culture Month in February 2019, with the theme Lakad-Gunita sa Lupang Hinirang, commemorates the 70th year of the University’s move from its 10-hectare original site in Ermita, Manila to its 493-hectare campus in Diliman, Quezon City. Walking Tours: Lakad-Gunita sa UP Diliman is a part of this month-long event, which celebrates and contemplates on our sense of place, and the routes in place-making through various acts of memory (paggunita) and acts of transfer (paglipat).

    Walking Tours: Lakad-Gunita sa UP Diliman, coordinated by AIT with other colleges (Architecture, Arts and Letters, Human Kinetics, Science, Social Science and Philosophy) and other UPD units (OICA), aims to engage the UP community and the public on the thriving biodiversity sanctuary and vibrant history and cultural heritage located within the Diliman campus. It offers the community and the public the opportunity to learn about public art, historic structures, flora and fauna within the campus in a safe learning environment. The walking tours will run from February 11 to March 29, 2019. The tours are free-of-charge. In summary, the schedule is as follows:
