The Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Incorporated (RAFI), in partnership with the Carolonian Sociolocial- Anthropological Society, launched its very first Kabataan, Kultura, ug Kabilin or KKK last August 8 at the Casa Gorordo Museum. Five museums in Cebu were opened from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm to welcome about 300 visiting students.
This cultural event is aimed to encourage the schools and their students to tour Cebu museums. KKK also aims to be the venue for cultural and social understanding especially by and among the young.
A short program was held showcasing presentations like the Filipino literary tradition Balitaw, and the ritual performed by fisherfolks of Aloguinsan called Pahinungod which literally means offering.
Kabataan, Kultura, ug Kabilin are Cebuano words that mean Youth, Culture, and Heritage. The KKK activity is similar to the successful heritage event called Gabii sa Kabilin happening annually for three years now.
Joey Velasco’s heART Exhibit
Part of the KKK opening program is the launching of the 6-day heART Exhibit in Casa Gorordo Museum from August 8 featuring the paintings of “heartist” Joey Velasco.
There were also exhibits at the SM Conference Hall and Archdiocesan Shrine of our Lady of Lourdes days earlier. Currently, Velascos’ artworks are exhibited at the Ayala Center Cebu.
