INSPIRING ENTERTAINMENT From a dramatic dance with water to comedic singing sommeliers, TTGassociations picks out some of the most fascinating entertainment ideas for meetings and events Joseph the Sand Artist Joseph Erwin Valerio uses his hands to draw on a flat glass covered with the finest sand imported from the UAE. His sandpaintings always weave stories and are themed, and can be customised to deliver the client’s message. Music can be incorporated to make the performance even more interesting. What’s unique: Joseph, who has no for- mal training in painting and drawing but catapulted to fame on a TV reality show for talented Filipinos, realised his talent while sifting through dirt and sand when his home was destroyed by a typhoon in 2009.
