National Arts Month this Feb

Since 1991, when the Presidential Proclamation No. 683 was signed, we have been celebrating National Arts Month in February of each year. The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), the country's prime agency for the arts and culture, has been leading the celebrations, initially with activities focusing in the National Capital Region (NCR) until they covered more and more regions. At present, activities are held all over the country.

The activities for the National Arts  Month have been consolidated into what is now known as the Philippine Arts Festival (PAF). Now, the PAF is mainly comprised of the flagship projects of the seven committee's of the NCCA's Subcommission on the Arts, namely, architecture, cinema, dance, literature, music, theater and the visual arts. You may check the schedule of activities at the NCCA website.
