The delegates sing the Philippine national anthemOn 30 March 30 to April 1, museum practitioners from all over the Philippines flocked to the University of Santo Tomas (UST) for the three-day museum summit initiated and hosted by the Lopez Museum and Library and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.
With some 170 summit participants, museums and other relevant institutions from the private and public sector had representation in what is hoped to be another concerted effort to address the current state of the field anchored in the fast-paced and complex 21st century.
The LML extended its appreciation to the Plotting Points co-presenters: venue host UST through the UST Museum; breakout session partners Alliance of Greater Manila Area Museums and the Zero In museum consortium (LML, Ateneo Art Gallery, Ayala Museum, Bahay Tsinoy and Museo Pambata); and the University of the Philippines School of Library Science and Information Studies.
Also, the event sponsors who made the summit possible included First Philippine Industrial Park, Gourmet Farms Inc. and UBER. Assistance was also extended by the UST Office of Public Affairs, Office of Alumni Relations and Facilities Management Office.
