Casa A. Gamboa presents “Food for the Soul”

 The art of reaching out

The historic Casa A. Gamboa in Silay City, Negros Occidental, the house built by Aguinaldo Severino Gamboa and his wife Dr. Alicia Lucero Gamboa in 1939, will host the Food for the Soul bazaar, set for the third week of November 2020, according to a press release from Casa A. Gamboa.

Food for the Soul will be a two-day bazaar aimed to provide artists and craft folk who lost livelihoods due to the pandemic, with a venue where they can present their creations and generate needed income. The event will observe proper health protocols and will be done in an outdoor setting.

Jardin de Alicia, the sprawling gardens at Casa A. Gamboa, will be transformed into a curated bazaar with discerning criteria. Tastefully done booths will be provided for artisans and artists who will pass stringent curation criteria. The event will be an exposition and exhibition of artisanal ware and cuisine that are unique and novel, embracing Negros culture and heritage.

In addition to providing opportunity for artisans and artists to exhibit and sell their creations, the press release also said that Feed our Souls aims to feed the local community a feast of homegrown artistry, creativity, and superior craftsmanship to appreciate. Thus, the act of “feeding souls” will happen both ways.

Food for the Soul is scheduled for Nov. 20-21, 2020. For details check the Facebook Page Casa A. Gamboa.
