The weeklong intensive Cultural Mapping Workshop has come to an end. A simple program was held last August 27, 2021 at the Sakayan Hall, City Hall Complex, Isabela de Basilan.
Isabela City Mayor Sitti Djalia A. Turabin-Hataman joined the program via Zoom alongside Ms. Gladys Argonza – Project Officer of NCCA, Ms. Denise M. Aguilar – NCCA Workshop Facilitator. While City Tourism Officer Claudio M. Ramos II, together with the other two NCCA Facilitators Mr. Glenn Lanticse and Nino Coquilla led in the discussion for the next steps for the Cultural Mapping Project.
Mayor Dadah Turabin-Hataman emphasized the importance of the project and assured that the her office and the LGU will be supporting this worthy project all the way.
The LGU of Isabela de Basilan through the Isabela City Tourism Office in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts initiated this project for the preservation, promotions and protection of Isabela de Basilan’s Cultural Heritage.
Our Cultural Mapping Team will now visit the different barangays to conduct fieldwork and data gathering. We look forward to enrich our Cultural Inventory which will be essential to the city’s development agenda.
