High on Art: Heights’ Second Regular Folio Launch (February, 2014)
It was a huge honor to be selected as the Project Head for the launch of Vol. 61 No. 2 of Heights’ Regular Folios. For this event, we wanted people to feel literature and art as a state of being high, from the talented speakers and performers, to some crazy projector manipulations with the help of our wonderful and unlike-Heights venue: the Com Studio in the Social Sciences Building of the Ateneo. After two months of intense planning and some strategic budget spending — which let us save 25% of our original budget —, we produced what Editor-in-Chief Audrey Ferriol described as “the best Folio Launch [she has] ever been to”!
