Pasig City — The year 2020 has been a hard one for the Philippines’ creative sector, with COVID-19 forcing the closure of performance, exhibition, and production venues, as well as limiting the movement and disposable income to potential patrons.

To help jumpstart a conversation about possible solutions, the Center for Research and Communication (CRC)  focused the second event under the IGNITE AsiaPacific Discussion Series on the topic of “Building Resilience and Sustainability in the Creative Sector,” held on November 27, 2020, Friday, at 3:00 P.M. Manila Time (GMT+8).

Organized with the University of Asia and the Pacific Office of the Alumni Affairs (UA&P OAA), the event featured UA&P College of Arts and Sciences Assistant Professor Dr. Laya Boquiren-Gonzales, and Mr. Christian Vallez, Chairman and Founder of the storytelling consultancy company Overmind,  to share their insights. • | RE de LEon | CRC ||
