ANI NG SINING 2101 OPENS


On its 19th year, the Philippine International Arts festival (PIAF) in celebration of National Arts Month (NAM) as per Presidential Proclamation No. 683 of 1991 kicks off with simple but still festive rites at the Rajah Sulayman Plaza in Malate, Manila on January 31, 2010.

The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) led by Chairman Vilma L. Labrador and Executive Director Cecile Guidote-Alvarez holds twin celebrations after the country was named as the cultural capital of the 10-member ASEAN for the years 2010 and 2011.

The much-anticipated opening “involves various artistic activities that focus on arts education and its relevance in building community spirit and pride,” according to the festival secretariat. “It also showcases the best artistic works and their contribution to the Philippine creative consciousness.”

PIAF provides a venue for artists, veteran or newbie, to celebrate their works and interact with one another. The seven flagship programs with the seven subcommittee on the arts presents their own program of activities that will travel all over the country.

This year, the Committee on Dramatic Arts is in charge of the event as a whole.

As early as 8 a.m. on Jan. 30, 2010, art booths of the several art disciplines open at the Clamshell area inside Intramuros (just a few blocks away from the NCCA office in Gen. Luna St.) These booths are expected to hold art sessions.

The colorful parade marches at 3 p.m. Starting point is at the NCCA building and goes all the way to the Rajah Sulayman park where the program begins.

Capping off the opening rites is a two-hour concert that features performances by committee members from dance, film, music, theater, and literature and the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra.

Fireworks display signals the official opening of the month-long, nationwide festival.
