Raket sa Vargas

We are going green this April!

Join us at our green edition of Raket sa Vargas on April 19 and 20 (Friday and Saturday), 2024. The UP Vargas Museum is looking for local raketirz who make and sell local, socially responsible, sustainable, repurposed or upcycled products at our bazaar tables. Fill-up the form if you wish to be part of our upcoming green art bazaar, Application is until 12 April (Friday), 11:59 pm only.

Raket sa Vargas returns for its third iteration this coming April 19 and 20 (Friday and Saturday) from 10:00am-6:00pm. This month’s Raket sa Vargas aligns with the museum’s Gardens and homesteads project which looks into creating collaborative activities with different communities to contribute to approaches to a more equitable food production and distribution systems in an urban context.

“Raket,” a Filipino slang for side hustle or sideline, means a quick gig to earn money. It is commonplace in the art industry to have jobs on the side for supplemental income; whether from selling merchandise or providing creative services parallel to one’s passion. The Vargas Museum, a not-for-profit public university institution, and the public programming of Raket sa Vargas recognizes the culture of side hustles among local artists and cultural workers and opens an opportunity for them to collectively share their works with the public.
