We are excited to share that the very first “Adow Ne Dumaget” or Dumagat Day Festival will be held this year, on May 28-29, 2018.

With the theme “Pagkilala, Pagkikilanlanan, at Pagpapakilala,” (Recognition, Gathering and Introduction) this historic two-day event will set the community center abuzz with festivities, traditional games, parades, exhibits, and performances geared to foster gatherings and exchanges to celebrate the Dumagat indigenous peoples’ cultural heritage. The event aims to foster a deeper understanding of our own local culture as this is key to empowering the Dumagat communities.

We need your help to make this happen.

We at the Dumagat Cultural Council (PAKNED) in cooperation with the Aurora Artist Residency Program and Space (AARPS) are working to raise funds for this cause, and we hope you can support us by being one of our sponsors.

Below is the link to our crowdfunding site, please donate and share with people who might be interested in supporting this cause. Any amount of donation will be equalled with our utmost gratitude and a special Adow ne Domaget postcard, while those who will contribute 5000-up will entitle the sponsor to a gift pack that includes free accommodation at the Aurora Artist Residency Space – Casita Aurora, as a reward.
