9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
What role does the cultural worker play in today’s global society?
Through Cultural Work 101, the Filipinas Heritage Library provides cultural workers the opportunity to enrich their understanding of the depth, scope, and value of their profession—how it relates to various disciplines, as well as how it contributes to the discourse on culture, history, and identity. The course hopes to equip participants with the knowledge on how cultural work translates to civic action toward the sustainable development of individuals and of society, through class lectures, personal reflections, group discussions, and other learning tools and methods.
Felice Sta. Maria, the facilitator for this seminar, is an award-winning cultural essayist and advocate. In 2001, she was the first recipient of theDangal ng Haraya for cultural management, a lifetime achievement award from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). She is actively involved in various causes, often using her writing to champion these advocacies. Her writings are centered on a personal philosophy for social transformation.
