from MASEPLA Transitory Site, Zamboanga City as they wait for permanence on transient grounds.  

The stories of resilience, survival, and hope poignantly etched on these slice-of-life photos

ABOUT SUGPAT ARTS FOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

 

SUGPAT: The Zamboanga City Arts for Development Program of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University through the Ateneo Center for Culture and the Arts (ACCA). It is funded by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and is intended for at-risk adolescent ages 12-17 from MASEPLA Transitory Site. 

SUGPAT has trained a total of 207 out-of-school adolescents ages 12-17 from MASEPLA Transitory Site, 

the biggest transitory site in Zamboanga City housing more than 800 families displaced due to the 2013 Zamboanga Siege.

The program immersed and trained the participants in different art forms such as Photography, Puppetry, Film, and Visual Arts. Community exhibits, performances and screenings were held to showcase the outputs of the participants and at the same time spark dialogue among the community on issues such as discrimination, bullying, and inter-cultural diversity.

 

SUGPAT is a local term understood by most of the ethno-linguistic groups in MASEPLA.  

It means "to connect", "to merge", "to join".
