If you’re not into February being a “Month of Love” or Chinese New Year, then why not spend the month appreciating Philippine Art with Dakila Philippines?
The National Arts Month is celebrated every February to promote Philippine art in various forms like music, dance, visual arts, architecture, film, and literature. This month-long celebration was declared by late former President Corazon Aquino on January 28, 1991.
Ever since its proclamation festivities have been happening around the country to promote local culture and Filipino artists through exhibits, competitions, and performances. With these celebrations, the pure genuine talent of Filipinos is once again recognized their creativity.
To further highlight Filipino artists, big or small, popular or not, DAKILA Philippines launches on its 2nd year TIBOK: DAKILA’s 28-Day Art Challenge.
The organization invites everyone to participate to create and share art work that resonate and reflect the current state of society. This challenge help DAKILA spotlight the role of creativity and creators as vital contributors to social transformation
