Last night at dinner, I met friends from the Philippine Normal University and we were engaged in delightful conversations on life, love and librarianship. I met once more my college friend, Mary Ann Jimenez-Salvador who is a successful librarian at De La Salle University, Dasmarinas Cavite having initiated Philippine cultural projects for the university's Filipiniana Collection and Services. Our bonding session continued way into the night as she became my room mate.
Me-ann, as she is known among friends is likewise pursuing her passion in art education, cultural studies and outreach projects. She has conducted workshops and art education sessions for the CCP and other organizations. A native of Quezon Province, she is currently helping a college in her hometown set up a library. Me-ann is married to sound artist and jazz musician Lirio Salvador whose sound art masterpieces has been exhibited in New York and Singapore.
