The Xavier Art Fest is a long-running annual competition meant to promote art appreciation and creativity while advocating the social good projects of Xavier communities’ partner beneficiaries. The theme this year is dubbed as, ‘Stronger Together: The Art of Possibilities.
The artworks to be featured were submitted through a month-long contest launched in December which was open to the school’s students, faculty, staff, and alumni from the Xavier School San Juan and Nuvali communities.
“All submitted artworks will be exhibited and sold to raise funds for the Fr. Zuloaga Faculty Emergency Medical Fund, Para Kay ‘Cher Fund, Xavier Educational Trust, and other causes,” the organizers said in a statement.
Aside from the integration of digital collectibles into the fest, the homegrown cryptocurrency exchange Philippine Digital Asset Exchange (PDAX) will also be a part of the celebration. PDAX will preview a collection of NFTs set to be released and made available for purchase on its mobile app this February.
“PDAX will also have a booth at the festival, where visitors can learn more about NFTs and how they can add value to one’s lifestyle,” they noted.
In the exchange’s year-end wrap, it recently disclosed that it reached 800,000 users in 2022.
In October 2022, PDAX also had a partnership with Yield Guild Games Alerts (YGG Alerts) and De La Salle University (DLSU) to launch the De La Salle Interactive Entertainment and Gaming Innovation and Talent Expo (DigitX) in the Decentraland metaverse from October 3 to October Nine.
