One Visayas

We watched the One Visayas presentation at the Cebu International Convention Center tonight. ‘One Visayas’ is a very noble initiative of the leaders of the different provinces in the Visayas. This project is a move to unite the neighboring provinces for the benefit not only of the region but also of the entire country. Present during the program were provincial leaders who showed their support by bringing with them their local festivals and products. Here are some photos that I took.

Inside the CICC, there were small booths showcasing the different sights and sounds of the different provinces in the Visayas.

One Visayas!  One People. One Destiny.

  1. nice feature on one visayas! i totally missed those childhood days making dioramas for school projects.

    btw, are there any lectures/seminars for this event, if there are please inform me. thanks!

    you might as well include shows that are held this month like
    -creative cebu by the bristish council in ayala
    -usctc cafa annual exhibit in ayala (i think it started already)
    -up fine arts (sm)
    -cebu exhibition (waterfront, there will be an open house on the last day, for photo ops— you ask permission from the exhibitor, you may i think take shots on the student design, instead)..

  2. another good one, Ley. . .’they’ could create a concert out of the theme ‘One Visayas’. Or, maybe Suroy-Suroy Cebu would expand as Suroy-Suroy Visayas-not a bad idea I guess.
