CCP Launches Ani 36, Disaster and Survival Issue

CCP launches Ani 36, Disaster and Survival Issue

Pasay City – The Literary Arts Division of the Cultural Center of the
Philippines (CCP) will launch Ani 36 on April 1, 2011, 7:00 p.m. at the CCP
promenade. Ani is a publication that showcases the varied literary traditions in
the country and the vibrant creative writing by Filipinos in other parts of the
world. Ani 36, themed Disaster and Survival, has sections on prose, poems,
children's literature, an essay on a CCP activity in response to a disaster in
the regions, and art reviews.

The art reviews section is composed of three winning essays in a competition
spearheaded by the Liongoren Gallery at the CCP dubbed Walong Filipina 2010: Sa
Ngalan ng Kalikasan III from October 14, 2010 to November 28, 2010. Works
outside the issue's theme are in the section titled “Malayang Haraya”.

“Ani 36 mirrors the writers' reflections on and responses to experiences in
confronting disasters,” says Herminio S. Beltran, Jr., Literary Arts Division
Director. “Although the works express untold suffering, destruction to life and
property, nightmares and folklore, they also speak of courage and heroism, which
inspire imagination, literature and art,” adds Beltran, the Ani 36 editor.

Ani 36 features the works of 43 authors namely, Angelo B. Ancheta, Rebecca T.
Anonuevo, Mark Joseph Z. Arisgado, Edgar Bacong, Miguel Balboa D'Mendoza, Abdon

Photo caption: The Ani 36 cover depicts the volcanic eruption of Mount Pinatubo
in 1991. The eruption, which caused massive damage to Central Luzon and outlying
regions, inspired creativity among the citizenry in harnessing resources that
the disaster brought in its wake. The Mount Pinatubo havoc posed challenges that
served as impetus for strategies of recovery and growth.
