Cultural Organizations in the Philippines

Cultural directions in the Philippines are generally coordinated by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) created by Republic Act 7356 in 1992. It is an independent government body tasked to be the overall coordinating and national policy-making body for all culture and artistic endeavors of the country.

NCCA has four subcommissions, namely:

  • Subcommission on the Arts
  • Subcommission on the Cultural Heritage
  • Subcommission on Cultural Dissemination
  • Subcommission on Cultural Communities and Traditional Arts

Complementing NCCA and its subcommissions are the following national cultural agencies:
