Sorsogon arts council reorganized
by JJJ Perez
Sorsogon City (18 February) -- The reorganization of the Sorsogon Arts Council (SAC) has re-affirmed and strengthened its role as advocate for indigenous, regional and Filipino artistic talents and the enhancement, development and promotion of Filipino culture, thus remarked long-time members of the local arts council.
SAC Ad-hoc member Joseph Perez said that the reorganization is necessary and urgent to sustain the initiatives and accomplishments that the council pursued in the past 20 years under our founding chairman, Reynaldo "Tootsie" Jamoralin including the redefinition of our future plans and objectives.
Founding member Isable Gile, on the other hand, said that the local arts council, known for being Sorsogon's vanguard for culture and the arts, is presently in the process of reconstructing its roster of membership, retrieving old records, renewing registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and linkages with Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and finally, establishing an office.
Another founding member, July Mendoza, is leading the efforts in communicating with the past members and possible new members for the added SAC general assembly and 20th foundation anniversary on February 26, 2010 at the Sorsogon Museum and Heritage Center here, coinciding with the celebration of the National Arts Month.
"Previous members and interested persons are very much welcomed to contact me at cp# 09298577417 or through my email firstname.lastname@example.org for details," SAC Secretary Jane Gamil said. (SAC-Sorsogon/PIA) [top]
