The month of May is National Heritage Month or Pambansang Buwan ng Pamana, by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 439 s. 2003. We enjoin everyone to take part in this celebration and help create among Filipinos a consciousness, respect, and love for the nation’s cultural history. This year’s theme is ““VICTORY AND HUMANITY: Upholding Filipino Heritage and Identity”.
In this time of pandemic wherein social distancing is the norm and interactions occur mainly on virtual platforms, everyone is encouraged to participate in initiatives relative to the conservation and preservation of Philippine cultural heritage.
We at NEDA Regional Office XI, invite you to a virtual tour of the Philippine museums and libraries on culture and heritage (links provided).
- Asian Art Museum
- Ayala Museum
- CANVAS (Center for Art, New Ventures, and Sustainable Development)
- Presidential Museum and Library
- National Museum of Fine Arts
- Museo de Intramuros
In this challenging time, let our shared culture and heritage remind us that we have more in common than what divides us. May this ignite our collective spirit of bayanihan and let us continue to work together towards a better normal and a better life for every Filipino. #WeHealAsOne
