This 3rd Type Kita exhibit promises to be bigger than before with over 60 participating exhibitors and artist sharing their talent for this event-for-a-cause. This holiday season, the Type Kita Exhibit will serve as a big Christmas gathering for enthusiasts around the metro!

The theme, "Pass on the Passion", aims to foster camaraderie and strengthen the local type community during the Christmas season by focusing on the value of collaboration and sharing. With this event, type enthusiasts can give back to the community and share their passion with others. The proceeds of this event will benefit "PEARLS", a non-profit organization that aims to provide unprivileged kids with Peace, Education, Aspiration, Respect, Love and Smiles.
Activities for the event are as follows:
PASS ON THE PASSION EXHIBIT
For this leg, exhibitors are encouraged to work and collaborate with other artists to share their talent and trade skills as they develop their pieces, strengthening the idea of sharing one’s passion through art.
ART TRADE/ TOOL SWAP
Art Trade Manila will lead an art-exchange activity where artists and guests can bring their works or writing tools and trade it with fellow type-enthusiasts. It’s like a massive exchange gift activity, but more fun!
Some of your favorite local letterers will also be invited to paint on wooden panels as part of the live art exhibit. Glass panels will also serve as a big doodle wall canvas!
And because the venue will be bigger, Zig Philippines will also be displaying large scale art murals as part of the exhibit.
Type Kita exhibits are also the best place to build your network with fellow type-geeks! To further promote camaraderie, participants will be given name tags for their IG handles so they can easily follow each other and keep connected even after the event!
