Satisfy your curiosity with Ayala Museum’s Inspire Every Day, through free admission to the museum's exhibits, inspiring talks, and other engaging activities.

Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — In an age where technology constantly surrounds us, it’s always refreshing to take a break and immerse oneself in local culture. For one in need of this, a day spent at Inspire Every Day might be the perfect getaway.

On July 22, the Ayala Museum, in partnership with CNN Philippines Life, opens up its doors for Inspire Every Day, its annual celebration of life, culture, art, and history.

This year’s theme is “Curiosity,” encouraging visitors and audiences to learn more about their identity as a Filipino and their role as citizens through exhibitions, inspiring talks, and other engaging activities.

Starting 9 a.m., access to the exhibits is free. The curated experience aims to delve into the complexity of Filipino identity through a mixture of artwork and history. “The Diorama Experience of Philippine History” and “Manansala & Manalad: Framing History,” for example, provide an illustrated saga and tapestry of significant events in the nation’s past with a virtual reality upgrade.

Other exhibits include “Vestments for Worship Wrapped in Identity,” showcasing liturgic garments designed by couturier turned monk, Dom Martin Gomez, and “Art and the Order of Nature” and the “Gold of Ancestors,” which exhibits textiles from across the country along with gold artifacts from the Philippines prehistoric age. Visitors can also access exhibitions of Philippine modern art illustrated by the vanguards of that era, Fernando Zobel and Arturo Luz.

On top of the interactive exhibitions, Inspire Every Day also includes talks from creatives and professionals who have made a mark in their respective fields. Guest speakers include graphic designer Dan Matutina (on how design contributes to nation building), actress Iza Calzado (on what makes a great actress), and CNN Philippines president Armie Jarin-Bennett (on why tell the story of the Filipino).

Popup stations such as those by Design Department, Craft Carrot,  I Am Cardboard, Power Mac Center, and Ayala Foundation will also provide interactive activities for the day’s visitors. There will also be special pocket performances by Manila’s preeminent voguers, the House of Mizrahi PH.
