Security Bank and Filipino Heritage Festival honor Filipino cultural heritage through National Heritage Month celebrations

Security Bank Corporation (Security Bank), in collaboration with the Filipino Heritage Festival, marked National Heritage Month by organizing a series of events aimed at promoting Filipino cultural heritage and conservation efforts.

The month-long celebration featured exhibits, forums, and a traveling exhibition honoring National Artist Larry Alcala.

Under the theme “Heritage: Change and Continuity,” the exhibits highlighted the dynamic nature of heritage and emphasized the importance of innovation in preserving cultural artifacts.

The opening event, “Places of Memory, Places of the Heart: Plazas in the Philippines Exhibit,” showcased the historical significance of town and city plazas through archival images, interactive artworks, and curated pieces from The M’s collection.

To empower the youth as cultural heritage bearers, Security Bank partnered with local government units and organizations in Silay, Negros Occidental, to conduct a three-day forum.

The forum aimed to equip 60 participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to conceptualize and implement community projects that preserve and promote local heritage.

Through lectures, workshops, and fieldwork, the forum fostered heritage awareness, patriotism, and leadership among the youth.

Additionally, Security Bank supported a traveling exhibition honoring the late National Artist Larry Alcala. Co-produced by The M, Filipino Heritage Festival Inc., and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, the exhibition showcased Alcala’s visual works that cleverly combined humor with commentary on Philippine society.

The exhibition toured Museo ng Makati and Negros Museum, allowing visitors to appreciate Alcala’s satirical newspaper cartoons and their depiction of everyday Filipino life.
