This three-day conference aims to share the insights from various culture and arts luminaries and experts in the country on how to strengthen the teaching of culture and arts in the academe –the kind that goes beyond classrooms and transforms into a life-long appreciation of their own culture and the Filipino artistic talent. Invite speakers are Dr. Ramon Santos, National Artist for Music; Ambassador Wilfredo Villacorta, Former Permanent Phil. Representative to ASEAN; Ms. Emily Abrera, Chair of the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Board of Trustees; Dir.
