An online game on Philippine arts and culture will become part of the Alberta Culture Days 2020 celebrations across the Province of Alberta, Canada from 01 to 30 September 2020.
Dubbed as “Hulaan Mo” (Guess It), the online game will introduce the participants to Philippine language, history, architecture, geography, cuisine, customs, traditions, and pop culture. The online game will promote interactive play, collaboration, inquiry, and critical thinking and will also have a lecture component.
Organized by the Philippine Arts Council (PAC), Hulaan Mo will be held via Zoom on 26 September at 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Interested participants may register through PAC’s Facebook page and website.
PAC is an association based in Edmonton, Alberta, that aims to raise the profile of the Filipino through the promotion and development of Philippine arts and culture.
Philippine Consul General to Calgary Zaldy Patron expressed support for Hulaan Mo and encouraged the Filipino community, especially the second- and third-generation Filipino-Canadians, to join the online game.
“One of the mandates of the Philippine Consulate General in Calgary is cultural diplomacy where we raise awareness and appreciation about Philippine culture. Hulaan Mo is one platform to make the learning of Philippine arts and culture more fun and interesting,” he said.
Hulaan Mo is also supported by the Alberta Ministry of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women.
