The Department of Trade and Industry together with Cebuano Artists will work together and launch the the Creative Council of Cebu. It was formed to further explore the creative industries of Cebu after it was recognized by the British Council Philippines as a Creative City.
The council will be a non-profit organization and will be composed of artists and entrepreneurs in the creative field. The council will work closely together and help promote the promising creative industry in Cebu. The council will be represented from the areas of Photography, Film, Literature, Visual Arts, Theatre, Music, Fashion Design, Architecture, Advertising and Design, and Multimedia.
I personally think this gives many talented Cebuano individuals to be able to seek for opportunities that can help them hone their talent. I am a patriot of Cebuano talent! Some direction and guidance about the industry is much needed and hopefully they can create avenues for training and development!
