TACLOBAN CITY - Eastern Visayas recently hosted a significant gathering of cultural preservation enthusiasts during the two-day Regional Multidisciplinary Research Conference held at the Eastern Visayas State University.

The brainchild of Dr. Sheldon Ives G. Agaton, the convention, known as "ARADMAN," was initiated in 2022 with the vision of becoming a steadfast institution where researchers, scholars, and professionals could come together to share and enhance their knowledge, studies, and research by exchanging ideas and fostering collaboration.

Highlighting the event, Prof. Joycie Dorado-Alegre delivered a plenary address titled "Pagbantay Ngan Pagmangno: HOW CAN WE SAFEGUARD OUR INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE?" She emphasized the profound role that culture and history play in shaping identity and promoting respect for diversity and imperfection. Prof. Alegre also discussed the government's role in preserving intangible cultural heritage and the importance of involving communities, groups, and individuals actively in its management.

Alegre underscored the importance of bridging generational gaps in preserving the rich history and culture of Eastern Visayas. She urged attendees to connect the past, present, and future in safeguarding their heritage.

Dr. Glenda B. Tupaz, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, expressed optimism about the conference's potential to inspire attendees to nurture intangible culture and pass it on to future generations. She described the event as an "indelible ink and a vibrant initiative" that affirms the significant role played by the current generation in preserving and revitalizing their cultural heritage.

The second ARADMAN conference was successfully hosted by EVSU in collaboration with the Leyte-Samar Heritage Society, Inc. The event was in connection with the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage, which celebrated its 20th ratification anniversary on October 17. 

Research papers presented during the convention are expected to be published in the ARADMAN journal, further contributing to the preservation and promotion of Eastern Visayas' intangible cultural heritage. —iTacloban (Source: CIO)
