    No Object Unturned

    Last October 20, 2020, the Nayong Pilipino Foundation conducted another round of online multi-sectoral consultation called Umpukan sa Nayon. Titled "No Object Unturned", this iteration convened anthropologists, ethnomusicologists, museum specialists, and scholars in cultural heritage to seek guidance on the museum the NPF intends to build that will house the Foundation’s permanent collection.

    Esteemed panelists included Romulo Vinci R. Bueza of Ateneo de Davao University, Marinella C. Mina of Ayala Museum, Dr. Jocelyn B. Gerra of the Cultural and Historical Affairs Commission-Cebu, Dr. Jose S. Buenconsejo of UP College of Music, and Dr. Nestor T. Castro of International Council of Museums- Philippines. Moderating the discussion was Dr. Laya Boquiren of the Nayong Pilipino Foundation.

    The panelists offered their perspectives and suggestions guided by three main questions:

    (1) How can institutions like the Nayong Pilipino Foundation confront the history of a collection and raise issues on ownership, rights, and ethics?;
    (2) How can museums engage the public to produce critical dialogues about a collection?
    (3) How can virtual museums support the relations that link the artifacts in a collection to persons and society?

    The Umpukan ran from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, divided into three episodes with one hour intervals each.

    Telling Heritage Stories Part 2 (Translating Heritage Stories in Philippine Archaeology)

    Last June 2020, the Nayong Pilipino Foundation, in partnership with Tuklas Pilipinas Society, hosted a public consultation titled Umpukan sa Nayon: Telling Heritage Stories. This iteration was divided into two parts. The second part was called “Translating Heritage Stories in Philippine Archaeology.” 

    Carrying over from the discussion from the first part of the webinar, the discussion mainly involved engaging communities and localizing archaeological heritage. The speakers gave a background on both their studies and their audience as they explained the challenge they face in interpreting archaeological heritage. They each gave their own insights for audience development and the role of public archaeology relating to the programs of traditional institutions and alternative learning hubs, tourism and sustainable development, and cultural sensitivity and Filipino identity.
