Arts Educators Forum – Enabling Creativity in the 21st Century

Last October 25, 2016 at the CCP Little Theater, various creative enablers from special arts and creativity training centers and organizations both from public and private sectors gathered together to present their best practices in promoting Philippine Arts Education.

The CCP Little Theater was packed with arts educators, arts practitioners, arts managers and students who were very happy to be part of the event. The forum inspired and ignited their passion in the arts.
