Who we are

We are Filipino artists, scholars, and community leaders engaged in Philippine cultural regeneration initiatives by way of workshops, performances, conferences, publications, and dialogue on various local, national, and global issues. We established the Tao Foundation for Culture and Arts two decades ago, in 1995, to help promote local, ancestral, and traditional knowledges.


Vision

Spaces for reclaiming, honoring, celebrating, revitalizing, and sharing living Philippine local ancestral and traditional knowledges and practices, with emphasis on embodied knowledges of marginalized cultural groups.


Mission

To facilitate the exchange, transmission, and development of local, ancestral, and traditional knowledges and practices.

To actively engage with, and contribute to the empowerment of bearers and stakeholders of local, ancestral, and traditional knowledges and practices.



Objectives

To recognize and value local, ancestral, traditional knowledges and practices, and their bearers.

To contribute to the well-being of bearers.

To develop the next generation of bearers.
