Color My Taxi:
A Global Film Fair
June 2011 to present
The primary objective of this project is to initiate conversations between drivers and passengers
on global issues plaguing the community at large and present varying perceptions of people from
diverse communities; bringing into light issues and concerns that are often left unnoticed or unknown
to many people, and are unaware of its effect in the global scheme of things. We aim to identify or
determine its domino effect to people across the globe, advocate tolerance, acceptance and understanding
of different belief systems. This is a unique project that deliberately inspire other artists, filmmakers
and audiences from all over the world to engage in this extraordinary forum. The challenge is to get young,
amateur, creative film makers (using any medium available to them) to interview cab drivers around the world
and come up with taxi colors reflective of their own personal advocacies that they believe will bridge the gap dividing societies.

In 2008, Omnilogy Inc. launched the START'EM program (Streetchildren Art Express Moments) for street
children to value art as a means of self expression. Now, as part of Bridging the Gap Series, Omnilogy Inc.
in cooperation with YMCA Cebu and Rotary Club of Talisay, has launched a new program called Catch a Dream:
A Visual Arts Appreciation Program. The program will teach children (particularly street children) about visual
arts appreciation and application. Through this, we hope to inspire and empower these children through art as a
discipline that they'd want to pursue and ultimately work with. This will take place every Saturday and Sunday at
YMCA Cebu from 7 to 8 am beginning March 2011 at the same time that Sounds for Change Music Development takes place.
A couple of volunteers will begin teaching a group of children about arts and visual arts in particular in hopes to
stir these children's imagination and introduce them to the arts.
