Live Blogging: CCP Batang Sining @ Mauban Quezon 2011

The opening ceremony of CCP's Batang Sining (Child of Art and Culture) at Mauban, Quezon has begun. Mayor Fernando Q. Llamas has given his opening remarks and now, Mr. Hermie Beltran is giving an introduction on cultural identity and the brief history of Batang Sining. Dr. Luis Gatmaitan MD is the lead facilitator while I will be the assisting facilitator of the week long arts and culture workshop. 

This year, the workshop is focused on creative expression in the visual and performing arts as well as literature. In previous years, children age 8 and above attend the workshop. This time around, CCP and the local government unit (LGU) of Mauban, Quezon decided to have a creative expression workshop for teachers. This way, teachers who care and look after children will be first hand models of creative expression and will initiate the continuous development of the creative process.

Ms. Anie Calleja, Tourism officer has been the most generous and accommodating host. She made sure that we're well fed and happy. She introduced us to the mayor and stakeholders of the town. Will blog more on the events and activities of the day.
