Baguio City – The country’s summer capital up North will showcase its rich culture and creativity through the Baguio Creative Hub, a project of the Baguio Creative Council to celebrate culture and creativity and dubbed as “best-of-the-best” folk arts and crafts products of the city in keeping with the festival’s theme “Celebration of Culture and Creativity.”
This is will also be some sort of a coming out party for Baguio City following its inclusion in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Creative Cities Network.
Councilor Elmer Datuin, Panagbenga Festival executive committee chairman, said the activity slated from February 10 to 24 at the People’s Park will be devoted solely to showcasing some 25 booths of folk arts and crafts products from the well-known and devoted Baguio City and Cordillera artists and artisans.
Datuin said the exhibit will be housed in pavilion-like structures with artistically executed designs.
Embers of the Diplomatic Corps and Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) will be invited to attend the opening of the Baguio Creative Hub project, as part of this year’s Panagbenga or Baguio Flower Festival celebration.
The Baguio Creative City official logo designed by national artist for visual arts Benedicto Cabrera, also known as “BenCab” will be unveiled during the program.
