highlights voters education!


The University of the Philippines (UP) Cebu annual Cookout has come again, showcasing the talents of UP Cebu students, along with Filipino bands Rivermaya, Missing Filemon, Powerspoonz and many other performers live this November 13 at the UP Cebu Grounds.

Dubbed as “UP Cookout 2015: The Change of Thrones”, this year’s Cookout heightens the discourse on the essence of youth vote—making the event more than just live performances, food and fun.

“We believe that young voters, making a huge chunk of the voting population can change Philippine politics if we rally behind issues that matter the most to our society,” said Justine Balane, UP Cebu Student Council Chairperson.

As the term suggests, Cookout started in August 1978 as a simple gathering of UP Cebu community where people get to talk about important matters over food.

According to Prof. Raymund Fernandez, UP Cebu alumnus and Professor of Bachelor of Fine Arts Major in Painting, Cookout also served as a culmination activity in celebrating the campus’ victory as one of the first campuses to ever reinstitute the Student Council after the declaration of Martial Law.

Soon enough, the simple gathering increasingly turned into a huge production where UP Cebu students rally behind socially relevant issues through a talent showcase, year after year.

UP Cookout 2015: Change of Thrones is co-presented by Globe, OLX.ph, Juanderlust, and Crown Regency.
