Tam-awan Village

Tam-awan Village The Official Tam-awan Village Page: A blend of indigenous Cordilleran craftsmanship with an artist’s concept for a village adapting to the Baguio setting.
(19)

Tam-awan Village, known artist haven and home of the Tam-awan International Arts Festival in the City of Pines, proudly marks another milestone celebrating its 20th anniversary after being opened to the public in 1998. Tam-awan Village was conceived by the great minds of Mr. Chit Asignacion, National Artist Ben Cabrera, solar artist Jordan Mang-osan, Atty. Nestor Mondok, Ms. Anne Camdas-Micheal and Mr. Jackson Bryan III. It was conceptualized and brought to life to serve as a cultural space with strategically planned landscaping that provided a semblance to traditional Cordillera villages whilst adapting to Baguio terrain. The village was envisioned to provide a venue for art and cultural activities that would enhance appreciation of culture and history. For the past two decades, Tam-awan Village has already featured artists from the different parts of the Philippines and overseas through more than 200 art exhibits. Today, Tam-awan continues to be a venue presenting masterpieces from both seasoned and budding artists. More than just being a home for many artists and their masterpieces, the village is also labeled by some as a living museum as it has managed to salvage authentic huts from Sagada and Kalinga. This effort has since enabled visitors to have a glimpse of and experience Cordilleran culture. At the “Tam-awan @ 20” press conference held last May 4, 2018, Atty. Trixie Angeles - Culture and Heritage Expert said, “Tam-awan was one of the first to create their representative community houses here so that people could live in them, stay in them, and appreciate them.” Despite limitations dictated by tradition and the physical attributes of the village, it has always been Chanum Foundation and Tam-awan Village’s purpose to bring the Cordillera culture together and present a holistic experience for the people seeking to know and understand the culture better by being one with it. In excerpts from Angeles’ interview, she stated, “The experience is really what Tam-awan offers.” She further explained that the state funds endeavors such as culture and the arts because it is equivalent to nation building. The participation of places like Tam-awan Village is essential because it has a real influence in creating not just a sense of place but also a sense of identity. She also added that even if she is not from the Cordilleras, she identifies with the Cordilleran people. She further elaborated that despite each and every individual belonging to another tribe, one identity defines us all—being Filipino. In the same press conference, Department of Tourism Cordillera – Regional Director Maria Venus Tan described Tam-awan Village as a place and a showcase of culture where people can see what they want to see of the rest of the Cordilleras. Another notable feature of Tam-awan’s is the village café that offers a unique menu that features food not only from the Cordillera region but also from neighboring provinces. This gives people an opportunity to have a taste of the flavors from the northern parts of the country. Aside from its café, Tam-awan Village also has its own craft shop showcasing different products such as Cordilleran attire and woven products, brass accessories, and wood carved decorations to name a few. The craft shop is a venue located within the village to help promote local products and to provide assistance to community-based businesses in the area. Angeles further stated, “Tam-awan really does walk the talk. Tam-awan creates not just a sense of place but also a sense of identity. It helps in nation building when the arts eventually becomes culture—it becomes alive and constantly being lived in.” In Mang-osan’s message during the press conference, he wished that the public would continue to support Filipino culture and the arts so that they would flourish in the many years to come and strengthen pride and dignity in this culturally-rich and progressive country. Chanum Foundation, Inc. and Tam-awan Village, through its President, Mr. Jordan Mang-osan, extend their gratitude to all agencies, organizations and institutions that have made Tam-awan the eminent venue for cultural experience today.

It is innate in every artist to search for and strive to understand the many sides of his or her humanity.

This exhibit focuses on the search for the cultural roots that bind the artist to her tribes. The works also give the world an opportunity to reminisce the old ways and practices of the Igorot women in a time when people were more connected to the earth, the animals and the natural life.

CHANUM FOUNDATION, INC.

During the years when the entire City of Baguio was still grazing land for large herds of cattle, Pinsao, location of the Tam-awan Village was one vast pastureland. A spring beside Tam-awan is the source of a body of water that once served as a watering hole for cattle. Thus, the place became associated with chanum, which in Ibaloi, means water. Adopting the name to symbolize its vision, Chanum Foundation, Inc. views its role to be as nurturing and life-giving as the spring in Tam-awan Village.

More than a showcase of indigenous craftsmanship, the foundation envisions the Tam-awan Village as an ideal venue for art and cultural activities aimed to enhance the appreciation of Cordillera life, its culture and its history. This is by raising awareness and appreciation of Cordillera culture, preserving Cordillera heritage and promoting cultural and economic empowerment in the Cordilleras.

THE FOUNDATION AIMS TO:


  • Promote community awareness on the intergenerational responsibility of the people to preserve and conserve our patrimony, the environment and our cultural heritage;
  • Nearby restaurants
