UP Diliman Narratives of Place

In 2019, to commemorate the 70th year of the University of the Philippines’ move from its 10-hectare original site in Ermita, Manila to its 493-hectare campus in Diliman, Quezon City, an exhibit was held at the Bulwagan ng Dangal University Heritage Museum on February 15 to April 12 entitled Lupang Hinirang: Mga Kuwento ng Pagsasalugar ng UP Diliman.  The exhibit was a project component of the UP Diliman Arts and Culture Festival in 2019. The faculty, students, alumni, and representatives of Barangay UP Campus and Barangay Krus Na Ligas contributed to the exhibit.

Through a combination of archival research, oral history methods, and installation art, the exhibit explores the contextual understanding of the relationship of history, people, site, structures, sound and material culture, serving as the basis of understanding UPD as an active heritage site.
