With this year’s theme Celebrating Filipino Creativity, Advancing Creative Philippines, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) celebrates the first Philippine Creative Industries Month 2023.

In line with the theme, this year’s PCIM aims to recognize the talents of Filipinos by celebrating their achievements not only in the local scenes but also highlighting their contributions in the international stage.
“As we embark in this exciting journey of celebrating Filipino creativity and advancing the creative industries in the Philippines, working hand in hand, we can use this occasion to highlight the importance and impact of the Cultural Mapping Law, also known as republic Act 11961, which I principally sponsored and authored. This law is a valuable tool in documenting, preserving, and promoting our cultural heritage, ensuring that it remains a source of inspiration and pride for future generations” – a message from Senator Loren Legarda, Senate President Pro-Tempore and Chairperson, Senate Committee on Culture and the Arts. 

“With PCIDA and with the push towards a Malikhaing Pilipinas and a more Malikhaing Pinoy, we dream tht arts, culture, and creativity are one that all 110 million plus Filipinos will realize, value, celebrate, cherish, call their own, and most especially, love…” - a message from Cong. Christopher “Toff” de Venecia, Pangasinan, 4th District.
