The House leader said the people behind the CCCP should be commended for continuously bringing the Filipino culture and arts to the people.

“For the past 50 years, the CCP has been producing and presenting music, dance, theater, visual arts, film and other allied arts from the Philippines and all over the world,” he said.

De Venecia filed House Resolution No. 327, citing the CCP’s crucial role in developing and promoting the country’s arts and culture.

“The Cultural Center of the Philippines was established as a non-municipal public corporation to implement more effectively and vigorously the constitutional mandate the arts and letters shall be under the patronage of the State, ” he said.

“It aims to become the leading institution for arts and culture, not just in the Philippines, but in Southeast Asia, by promoting artistic excellence and nurturing the broadest audiences, ” he added.

De Venecia cited that the CCP marks its golden anniversary with an authentic lineup of artistic performances, competitions, and culturally-inclined conferences.

From September this year to September 2020, there will be live performances, exhibitions, as well as national and international tours of select CCP homegrown companies and revered local and international artists, he noted.

“Through the years, the CCP continues to bring culture and the arts to the people, ” he said.
