On August 1-2, 2019, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) conducted its second forum with nine researchers (see above photo) to find a practical and effective framework to craft the national research agenda for intangible culture. NCCA has already crafted policies and guidelines on the study of tangible culture. National Artist VirgilioAlmario, also the current chair of the NCCA, thought it best to craft one for the study of the intangible culture. The framework which the second group of researchers came up will be presented to various groups, in particular government agencies, non-government organizations, indigenous peoples, business, academe and others. NCCA hopes to write the national agenda this December 2019.
