THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN AGUSTIN VIRTUALLY LAUNCHED ITS CENTER FOR HERITAGE AND INDIGENOUS CULTURES (CHIC)

The University of San Agustin virtually launched its Center for Heritage and Indigenous Cultures (CHIC) through a Virtual Press Conference last 15 January 2021 with our friends from the media in attendance. 

Dr. Clement Acevedo, DMA, Director of CHIC, presented initiatives they had amidst the struggles and challenges posed by the pandemic. CHIC received a grant through its Director for his project entitled “Hiligaynon Art song Workshop” from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). Such developed creative works held a series of lectures, webinars, and performances that highlight the importance of preserving Hiligaynon music, art, and culture.

Meanwhile, the National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) funded the project “Binalaybay sang Ati: Mga Istorya sang Kabuhi sa Tunga sang Kalamidad kag Covid-19”. Mr. John Paul Petrola, the coordinator of the Villanova Institute for Social and Economic Research, is the proponent of the study. The project aims to document the Ati people’s lived experiences and struggle for recognition in Panay during this COVID-19 pandemic.See the photos and video for the details of the Press Conference.

  1. Wonderful website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of
    any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article?

    I'd really love to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from
    other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Cheers!

  2. When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
