Foundation Magalunsar sang website para sa Panublion kag Kultura sang Negros

BACOLOD CITY—Igalunsar sang isa ka Foundation ang website nga nagasentro kag nagasaysay sang panublion, artes, kag kultura sang mga taga-Negros.   Ini sya nga website ginalaum sang Pundasyon nga mangin isa ka plataporma para ipabutyag sa bilog nga kalibutan ang pinasahi nga kultura sang mga Negrense.  

Ini nga website igalunsar sa adlaw sang Cinco de Noviembre, isa ka adlaw nga gina selebrar sang mga taga-Negros bangod nga sang 1898, ang mga Negrense naka-ambit sang kadalag-an batok sa mga Espanyol sa isa ka rebolusyon.

Ang Negros Season of Culture (NSC) isa ka proyekto sang Angelica Berrie Foundation nga makit-an subong sa Facebook kag sa Instagram.

“We are living in an extraordinary time, in the midst of a global pandemic, in a moment of radical disruption,” suno sa kay Baba Torre, presidente sang
Angelica Berrie Foundation.

“Our messaging is focused on the future. We want to inspire hope and tap into the creative spirit that has always been part of who we are as Negrenses,”  hambal ni Torre.

The website will have five editorial categories—heritage homes, handicrafts, food, cultural experience and people.

“We conceived of threading stories of creativity into one regional narrative, creating a platform for local, national and global audiences to discover what makes Negros special,” Torre said.

She said there are many hidden gems in Negros Occidental that her group hoped to bring to life through the NSC.

The first year of the NSC will be dedicated to the late Negrense movie director Peque Gallaga whom Torre described as a “film and theater genius”.

“We will honor Peque Gallaga for inspiring so many of us to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, for teaching us to express our creativity in big, bold ways that contribute to the story of this place we call home,” Torre said.

She said investing in creative potential develops industries vital to the cultural life of a region, creating real growth and jobs.

“Creative industries will define Negros as a place worthy of attention for its unique culture, affects how the rest of the world views us, and encourages people in other countries to engage with us,” she added.

The launch, to be hosted by multi-awarded Negrense actor Joel Torre, will be streamed through Facebook Live 8 p.m. on Nov. 5, the day Negros Occidental celebrates its annual Cinco de Noviembre feast to commemorate the day Negrenses revolted against Spanish colonizers and won in 1898.
