Pangasinan Celebrates 2021 National Arts Month
The Province of Pangasinan through the Pangasinan Tourism and Cultural Affairs Office joins the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the Filipino Nation in celebrating National Arts Month 2021.
The month of February of every year is declared as National Arts Month (NAM) by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 683. The proclamation highlights “the disciplines of theatre, dance, music, visual arts, architecture, literature, media arts, and film need to be preserved, enriched, and evolved in a climate of free artistic and intellectual expression”.
This year, NAM takes on the theme “Alab-sining, Alay-sigla” as the celebration continues to provide opportunities for harnessing artists’ creative energies in uplifting the nation’s spirit. Furthermore, the NAM 2021 celebration seeks to conserve, promote and popularize Filipino artistic creations; integrate the arts in the community life; and harness the arts as catalysts for values education.
