NVC’s Artisans of Hope have made a name for themselves upcycling discarded materials into beautiful objects. Their talent caught the attention of Gigi Phua Lim, owner of Walls Gallery which has been supporting and developing emerging Filipino artists for nearly 20 years. To showcase the talent of the artisans, Walls Gallery organized COLLABORARE, a collaboration between NVC’s Artisans of Hope and the artists under the wing of Gigi Phua Lim. The 28-piece collection features mixed media artworks that have been embellished by the Artisans with empty Nespresso coffee capsules.
The ribbon cutting ceremony kicked off the event.

The collection was unveiled on November 18, 2022 and it was well received. The exhibit will run until December 18 at Walls Gallery, The Triumph Square, Quezon Ave. Please contact Walls Gallery at 0917 863-5778 or [email protected] to schedule a viewing or to inquire about commission pieces.
Proceeds of the exhibit will go to support emerging Filipino artists and the Artisans of Hope Livelihood Workshop.
