SOME of the country's hottest bands are giving education a boost in the 
advocacy youth concert "Educ8 to Liber8" on November 19, 7 p.m., at the PTA 
Tent (Clamshell 2) in Intramuros, Manila. 

Leading the pack of performers is indie-pop band Orange & Lemons, whose 
monster hit, "Pinoy Ako," theme of ABS-CBN's top-rating reality series "Pinoy 
Big Brother," is currently burning video and radio charts. The band will share 
the limelight with other chart-topper 6CycleMind, acoustic hitmaker U-Turn, 
and fast-rising bands Blue Ketchup, Protein Shake, Out of the Box, and Milk 'n 
Money. 

Inspired by the international "Live 8 Concert" series, "Educ8 to Liber8" aims 
to use the power of music to launch an awareness campaign for the youth on the 
state of education in the country today and advocate for their active 
participation in the improvement of the education system through eight 
concrete action points. The concert is organized by Ateneo's Pathways to 
Higher Education as part of the nationwide Pathways Educ8 to Liber8 Movement 
that encourages the youth to volunteer in education reform programs.

Educ8 to Liber8 is one of the highlights of Synergeia Foundation's educational 
expo Tipanan 2005 which will run at the PTA Tent from November 18-20. For 
details, call Synergeia at +63 2 8982913 and +63 2 8982617 or log on to

Synergeia is an educational reform organization composed of local government 
units, non-profit organizations, and individuals working in 250 municipalities 
in the country, in cooperation with the Department of Education. 

Now on its second year, Tipanan celebrates Synergeia's accomplishments and 
aims to enlist more partners in education reform so we could expand our 
programs to other communities to benefit more kids. This year, the event is 
dedicated to helping schoolchildren in the Muslim communities of Tawi-Tawi and 
Sulu get a good education.
