CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY -- Do you have a film you want to make? Do you want your local government unit to undertake cultural development projects? Do you have an exhibit in mind that will uplift the cultural consciousness of your community? Do you want to do an arts and cultural festival for your community or school? Do you want to conduct research on a certain aspect of Filipino culture? It is possible for that planned workshop, that painting session, that training on traditional weaving to become reality.
The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), led by its chairman Felipe M. de Leon Jr., OIC-Executive Director Adelina M. Suemith and Deputy Executive Director Marichu G. Tellano, continues to fulfil its mandate of preserving, developing and promoting of Philippine arts and culture by giving financial and technical assistance to arts and cultural projects.
Encouraging artistic creation and empowering the artists and cultural workers, the NCCA is now accepting proposals for projects to be implemented in 2017. It is also looking for implementing partners of projects which have been conceptualized by the agency.
For 2017, the NCCA is providing venues for the different regions to articulate their local culture and development concerns which the different programs and projects shall address. In line with this, the priority programs and projects identified are grouped into island cluster—National Capital Region (NCR), Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The NCCA has set two categories of proposals. Category A includes projects which have been conceptualized during the various levels of planning workshops by its various national committees following the identified needs of the locality and where specific outputs and deliverables had been defined. Projects in this category will have three or more component activities. Proponents interested to implement projects under this category may submit a letter of intent.
On the other hand, Category B calls for project proposals conceptualized by proponents with due consideration to the important concerns cited in the project brief and aligned to the identified NCCA priorities and outcomes. Interested proponents may submit a project proposal.
Project briefs as well as guidelines and requirements can be viewed and downloaded at the NCCA Web site.
Filipino individuals as well as civil society organizations, indigenous peoples’ organizations/groups, local government units, government agencies, state universities/colleges and public schools are all encouraged to apply.
Deadline of submissions of letters of intent and proposals is on September 30, 2016. It must be submitted to the Planning, Policy Formulation and Programming Division (PPFPD) led by its division chief, Bernan Corpuz, at Room 5-A, fifth floor, NCCA Building, 633 General Luna Street, Intramuros, Manila.
