Relive the beauty of Old Manila, explore art, enjoy live music + more at Manila Transitio 1945

Reimagine Manila in a beautiful way.

( We're pretty sure you have dreams for Manila—there's even a Facebook page dedicated to redesigning the city (it's Manila, reimagined)! This February marks the 71st anniversary of the Battle of Manila a.k.a. the day numerous lives were lost, and the city of Manila, destroyed.


This month, the Intramuros Administration, VivaManila, and Carlos Celdran present the 7th Manila Transitio 1945: a multi-media art event that commemorates the Battle of Manila. It aims to celebrate the beautiful Manila that was and drive Filipinos to work hand-in-hand for a beautiful new Manila that will be. It's happening next weekend, February 27, Saturday, from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at Fort Santiago, Intramuros.



There will be art installations and an open air concert of Spanish, Filipino, and American music by The Executives. Carlos Celdran will also be performing a ritual featuring a video installation by Tad Ermitaño. Finally, Ill Primitivo will be spinning Filipino disco, kundiman, and more until the end of the night. Cocina de Tita Moning, XO1946, EAT Cafe, Juan Brew, and Premier Wines will be available at the venue as well.



Picnic blankets, bikes, and dogs are all welcome! Recommended donation is P500 but you're welcome to pay what you can afford. To reserve, e-mail with the subject line "TRANSITIO 1945."
