Every year the Cultural Center of the Philippines opens its doors to the public for a one full day of multi-arts exhibit. The annual event, dubbed as PASINAYA, features musical, theaterical and dance performance from the CCP resident companies and countless artists from just about every art genre. The festival also includes visual art exhibits, film screenings, storytelling sessions, and arts and crafts market.
To jampack this potluck of artisans in one day under one roof, CCP made use of every available venues (apart from its halls and theaters) such as hallways, promenade areas, lobbies, alleys and carparks.
The open house festival is a “See all you can, Pay what you can” presentation to allow every arts aficionado from all levels of society the opportunity to experience Filipino cultural aesthetics once in a while.
