NATIONAL ARTS MONTH
Finally, it’s February! ! Halina’t Maki-Sining, Bayang Malikhain!
To celebrate the artistic excellence and pay tribute to the uniqueness and diversity of the Filipino heritage and culture, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) leads the celebration of 2024 National Arts Month (NAM) by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 683, signed in 1991.
This year’s National Arts Month celebration aims to harness the creative energies of artists towards nation-building, integrate the arts into the lives of diverse populations and communities (LGBTQIA+, PWD, IP, Youth, Senior, etc.), and engage critical discourse, awareness, and appreciation of various arts and art disciplines through different emerging platforms.
Bearing the theme “Ani ng Sining, Bayang Malikhain”, 2024 NAM seeks to encapsulate the notion that the bountiful harvest of a Filipino creative nation is drawn from the products of human imagination, not just of individuals but of people as a collective. A creative nation, Bayang Malikhain, embodies the idea of a Filipino society that places a high value on imagination, innovation, and artistic expression as integral components of our identity and progress. In a Bayang Malikhain, artistic endeavors are celebrated as essential contributions to the nation’s development and cultural richness.
Celebrate with us!
