On November 21 and 22, Heights held the 6th Ateneo Heights Artists Workshop (AHAW), an annual event organized by Heights for 10 young student-artists from the Ateneo de Manila University. The two-day workshop was held at the Boso Boso Highlands Resort.

AHAW 6 presented a restructured program, which retained the panel critique session of each fellow’s portfolio. In addition to the traditional program, there was also an individual mentoring session and exhibit pitch.
