Palihan is one of the 3 programs of Tuloy Po Kayo (TPK) featuring various workshops and performances by solo artists and performing art groups from all over the country, exhibitions and virtual museum tours, and arts market, among others.
A re-branding of Pasinaya, Tuloy Po Kayo (TPK) also consists of Palabas and Palitan which takes place on March 19 to 28, 2021. While Palihan features workshops, Palabas beams the spotlight on performances, productions, shows, and other activities from the CCP resident companies, regional groups and other participants. Palitan is all about business-to-business art exchanges with international and local festival organizers, art programmers and creative stakeholders.
Tuloy Po Kayo’s concept comes from the tenet of Philippine psychology that touches on the Filipino’s desire to welcome his fellow man into his home.
TPK gathers as many artists as possible, engaged in as many art forms as there are. Taking the new realities into consideration, TPK focuses on the revitalization of the industry through the presentation of a broad spectrum of artistic activities in all artistic genres.
TPK is CCP’s way of revitalizing the Philippine arts scene, which has been greatly affected by the pandemic. The center aims to provide venues to Filipino artists to share their creations, while introducing and developing audiences in the arts through a series of performances, workshops and exhibits.
