The Baguio City Council has approved the request of the Baguio Arts and Crafts Collective, Inc. (BACCI) and the Mobile-Oriented Valuable Entrepreneurship (MOVE) to stage a series of events under the banner of “District Ocho 2600: Pop-Up Food Street and Creative Nook Launch.”

The city council, during its regular session on Jan. 22, approved a resolution authorizing the conduct of the event from Jan. 22 to March 3 in various locations in Camdas barangay.

The creative endeavor curated by BACCI and MOVE is aligned with the city’s commitment to maintaining its title as a Creative City for Arts and Crafts designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. 

It promises a number of benefits for residents in the barangay and other District 8 areas.

Activities include a pop-up food street and a series of livelihood seminars and workshops at the barangay’s multipurpose hall. These activities are expected to establish potential venues for other creative events in the future.

The organizers are committed to obtaining all necessary documents and permits from the city government before the execution of the project and adhering to all applicable regulations and terms set forth by the city.

The venture is in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry-Baguio Benguet, Crafter’s Association, Pasakalye Artist Group, and independent artists and creative entrepreneurs in the city.

The organizers have committed to provide assistance for the livelihood programs of organized groups, including women, men, youth, persons with disabilities, and senior citizens within district 8. – Jordan G. Habbiling
