Load Na Dito
May 22, 2019
Load Na Dito is an artistic and research project based in Manila, Philippines. Currently located in Cubao, Quezon City, it has been developed as a homemade culture, through its use of any possible space as a site for knowledge sharing, inquiry and discussion. The name “load na dito” is borrowed from a popular top up system for cellphone credit in the Philippines, where you can load up credits anywhere you see the sign “load na dito.” This project is a model that allows its founders to develop projects in different locations—building new energies to have and maintain “load”.
