  1. this add is great it should be advertised both on tv and radios so as to promote the festival before the margi gras seasons heats up…good job LGUS.. and kudos for the tribal communities of davao!

  2. hay nako! hindi masyado succesful ang kadayawan, its all becoz of that shitty war between milf and the gov.. always fighting for principles which is killing the entire mindanao…thats one selfish and sad principle…such a shameful act for them to include the civilians and the island as a whole..

    NOW it is truly validated by no less than the Office of the President, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), and even internationally by the UNESCO itself that Davao City is indeed an outstanding culture-friendly city and that Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte is an outstanding culture-friendly local government official.

    This recognition was bestowed upon the City Government of Davao and Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte on March 27, at Malaca├▒ang Palace, Manila in celebration of World Theater Week. I received the award on behalf of Davao City and Mayor Duterte as the OIC Director of the Museo Dabawenyo, together with Mr. Oca Casaysay of the Kaliwat Theater Collective.

    The beautifully sculpted and very heavy “Sarimanok” trophy was designed by National Artist for Sculpture, Dr. Abdulmari Asia Imao. These trophies were handed out by Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita, on behalf of the President, and NCCA Chair and Department of Education Undersecretary Vilma Labrador to outstanding artists, media organizations, and local government units.

    Davao City was the only city from the Visayas and Mindanao to receive the most culture-friendly LGU recognition. All the other LGUs were either provinces or municipalities.
