The June issue of Cultural News features the launch of the Ayala Museum's YouTube channel.
This month, the Ayala Museum—an iconic modern art and cultural history museum in the heart of Manila’s Makati Business District— premiered the first of a new mini-documentary series on their YouTube channel.
“Locating the Filipino” is the first film in the series ATIN: Stories from the Collection (“Atin” means “ours” in Filipino). The Ayala family’s ties to Manila go back to the 1800s. Through the Ayala Museum, they champion and promote Philippine heritage and culture. This film series is part of their innovative “Museums-on-the-Go” initiative, which complements the museum’s extensive physical collection of art, historical artifacts, and other exhibits. If you enjoy this illuminating film, please subscribe to see the rest of the series.
