Small Voice: a photo exhibit at the Alcove

small voice

Opens March 6, 5:30Pm, and runs to March 21. The Alcove Photo Gallery, located at the Filipinas Heritage Library, Makati Avenue, Ayala Triangle, Makati City, is open Tuesday to Saturday at 9:00AM to 6:00PM.


We are but a small voice of compassion for the less fortunate in this world. Yet, it is our purpose to make our voice heard through our art. Through our photographs, we hope to call attention to the needs of those whose voices are even smaller than ours. If you reminisce about your childhood, you will remember how small your voice was, both literally and figuratively.

Pause for a moment and compare your childhood voice with the voices of community children, the street children who we see almost everyday. These children have voices so minute that they are practically unheard. Silence envelops the misfortunes of community children, misfortunes that have been brought about by environmental and social factors such as domestic violence.

Children are frequent victims of domestic violence. Violence in the home is not only physical, but also takes the form of emotional and mental harm. Our exhibit, Small Voice, recognizes the plight of community children. Our photographs attempt to communicate their anguish through the use of symbols and metaphors.

Through Small Voice, we would like to amplify their muffled voices so that more people might listen. For more details, please call 8921801, email , or visit
