PAGHILOM 2: Cavite’s Biggest Art Festival is Back at the Magical Alitaptap Artists Village


Mynila Team February 11, 2019 Music & Culture

Artists, students, teachers and cultural workers in Cavite unite to restage PAGHILOM, the first and biggest artist-initiated arts festival in the province that will run from February 28 to March 2 2019!

The festival carries the theme Paghilom, literally meaning healing or renewal. Paghilom alludes to art and its production as transformative acts necessary to cure individuals, communities, and society of its maladies.

The Paghilom Arts Camp and Festival in Cavite coincides with the celebration of the National Arts Month this February.
