  • Empower Women’s Talents at CCP’s Festival of Plays by Women This March
  • As we celebrate women empowerment this March, join the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) in cooperation with Women Playwrights International-Philippines (WPIP) as they put the spotlight on inspiring women playwrights and theater practitioners at the Festival of Plays By Women.

    Happening from March 6 to 8 at the CCP Studio Theater, the three-day event will feature stories by women through forums, readings, and featured performances.

    With the theme “Empowerment, Diversity and Equality,” the event aims to inspire and encourage more women to write their own stories and believe in their own talents in the fields of writing, producing, and acting.

    It is also the flagship project of the CCP’s Gender and Development Committee for this year.
