Masami Shigeta
We are now on the 37th annual conference of FACP.
This year's annual conference will be held at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP). This is the first time in FACP history to have a back to back conference with the Association of Asia Pacific Performing Arts Centres (AAPPAC). The conference this year makes it more special because the CCP is celebrating its 50th anniversary. CCP is known for preserving, developing , and promoting arts and culture in the Philippines.
We are encouraging everyone especially people who are involved in performing arts including the orchestra, venue, production management, operation, stage production as well as educators to listen to our distinguish speakers. Not only you will learn from them but you`ll be able to widened your network thru interacting with other attendees from all over the world.
I`m hoping to see all of you in the home of performers of Manila, the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
