DOT Endorses Negros Season of Culture

On February 22, 2021, Atty. Helen J. Catalbas, Regional Director of the Department of Tourism Region VI, issued official endorsement of Negros Season of Culture. In giving its support to the NSC, the agency “commits to share the year-long activities of Negros Season of Culture to its social media platforms, allied agencies, Philippine embassies and consulates.” It also authorizes NSC to use the DOT Region VI official logo, and the visual brands for “It’s More in the Philippines” and “Safely Experience Western Visayas First”.

Negros Season of Culture is a non-profit organization devoted to the promotion of Negrense heritage in all its forms of expression. The NSC website, launched in November 2020, is a repository of original video documentaries and feature stories in several categories, including Design & Architecture, Food, Art & Craft, Cultural Experience, and People.

Leading the line-up of topics scheduled for 2021, and the first NSC project to bear the logos of DOT Region VI, is the Virtual Visita Iglesia scheduled to be live-streamed on Facebook on Holy Thursday, April 1. The project includes video documentaries of seven heritage churches in Negros Occidental. These antebellum places of worship, built on parishes established by Spanish missionaries, now join the ranks of heritage churches in dotting the islands of the Visayas.
