The creativity and innovation hub of Ateneo de Manila University

Space, programming, and support for different minds, talents, and expressions to meet, showcase, co-create, and disrupt.

About Us

As the creativity and innovation hub of the Ateneo de Manila University, Areté provides the space and freedom for groups from different fields and persuasions to create, collaborate on, and share knowledge, skills, and practices.

Our complex features theaters, art galleries, studios, laboratories, a makerspace, teaching and meeting rooms, and several open areas. Using these facilities enables us to host, support, and connect academics, artists, professionals, and leaders of different talents and interests whose exchanges, we hope, will spur the kind of creativity and innovation that creates unforeseen paths and betters our communities.

Areté is thus betting on the desire of a growing many, coming together to impart and to learn, to be inspired and to be challenged, to focus but still to wander in all that could be done as a collective concerned with what is possible.
