Sponsorship of Senate Resolution No. 958 and Senate Resolution No. 959

I had the privilege to sponsor Senate Resolution No. 958 or the Resolution Congratulating and Commending the Twenty-Six (26) Ani ng Dangal Awardees. Through this Resolution, we recognize their outstanding contributions to the global artistic scene.

To all the awardees who are artists, performers, writers, filmmakers, and cultural advocates, your work transcends our vast archipelago, delivering our cultural and artistic landscape throughout the globe; your work knows no bounds, effortlessly overcoming the language barrier, and touching the hearts and souls of people across the country and beyond.

I am also overwhelmed with pride as we adopted Senate Resolution No. 959, which recognizes the invaluable contributions of the nine recipients of the Gawad sa Manlilikha ng Bayan (GAMABA) award. In a world where modernization threatens to overshadow our traditional arts, this resolution reaffirms our commitment to safeguarding and revitalizing our Philippine cultural heritage.

As we celebrate our living treasures, let us unite in championing cultural initiatives and supporting our cultural bearers, ensuring that their rich legacies continue to thrive for generations to come.
