FIESTA FILIPINAS: “MASSKARA FESTIVAL” ON 30 OCTOBER 2021
From facemasks to full masks, join the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Tourism on a virtual celebration of the dynamic Masskara Festival of the City of Smiles, Bacolod City on this special episode of #FiestaFilipinas! Celebrate the MassKara Festival with us virtually on 30 October 2021, 4:00 p.m. (PST) via the official DFA Facebook and YouTube channel (@dfaphl).
Borne from a tragic disaster in the 1980s, the Masskara Festival was started by the people of Bacolod City to uplift the spirits of the locals. It is a declaration of the people that they will rise and survive the challenges and tragedies that they are facing, showing their resilience and tenacity. Together, “Kari sa Bacolod, Dala sang Maskara!” (Come to Bacolod, bring a Mask!) and let’s rise together from this time of uncertainties.
“Fiesta Filipinas: An Online Celebration of Philippine Festivals” is a project of the Department of Foreign Affairs in partnership with the Department of Tourism, and in cooperation with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts. The project aims to introduce and showcase Philippine festivals, culture, and traditions to our global audience and invite them to the country when conditions are more favorable.
PCG XIAMEN DISTRIBUTES SECOND ROUND OF CARE PACKAGES TO STRANDED FILIPINO SEAFARERS
Twenty-nine (29) stranded Filipino seafarers aboard Hanrong 362, 366 and 369 in Dongshan County, Zhangzhou City finally received their second round of care packages and medical supplies on 13 October 2021. The said support was from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) through the Philippine Consulate General in Xiamen.
The Consulate General will continue to extend assistance and support the distressed Filipino seafarers, until their eventual repatriation to the Philippines.
IN FOCUS: MINDANAO ART FEATURING BALAI KALIPAY
As part of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA)’s participation on the celebration of the Museum and Galleries Month, the Office of Public and Cultural Diplomacy (OPCD), will stream online a 360-degree virtual tour entitled “In Focus Mindanao Art Featuring Balai Kalipay” that will run from 11 to 31 October 2021 through the DFA Facebook page and Youtube channel.
OPCD has partnered with ManilART Foundation, Inc. to bring to the world as a never before Virtual Reality-ready tour of Balai Kalipay, where indigenous art collections and huge sculptures are sprawled in the museum garden.
ManilART is an art fair now on its 13th year co-presented by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts as a venue for its Museums and Galleries Month Event to promote Philippine culture through visual arts that bring in together renowned and amateur artists here and abroad to showcase their creative works. ManilART envisions the Philippines to be a premiere art hub in Asia. This year’s theme of the ManilART Fair is “Continuing Legacies.” As it has been challenging for art galleries to have physical exhibits, ManilART Fair 2021 will launch digital exhibits, virtual art talks and satellite site tours such as Balai Kalipay.
The Consulate General invites everyone to take part and enjoy this immersive experience.
