Spearheaded by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ (NCCA), 2015 National Arts Month celebration bears the theme “Highlighting local cultural genius to promote pride of place.”  Local programs that bring to light the industrial, cultural and artistic champions of their localities are implemented by various local government units, educational institutions and non-government organization in twelve chosen localities throughout the country.

Aside from being the primary government agency dedicated to the preservation, development and promotion of Philippine arts and culture, NCCA also opens avenues through which the Filipino people are able to share art with, get acquainted to and learn from the various local and global cultures. As a non-profit national cultural arts organization aiming to advance Korean culture and arts and promote cultural and artistic interchange between Korea and the rest of the world, CACK engenders a cultural thrust through such performances for each country’s artistic empowerment.
