Introduction

Magna Kultura Foundation is an arts and cultural organization NGO implementing educational, cultural, and socio-civic programs at the grassroots of society; supporting civic groups and organizations with social entrepreneurial skills and capabilities to become fellow-advocates in promoting Philippine arts and culture, in order to promote patriotism.

Major Activities

Magna Kultura Foundation conducts music, visual arts, film and theater arts projects, in order to enrich local citizens with alternative education and cultural programs.

On top of the art and cultural projects, Magna Kultura is currently advocating the revival of the Games of our Heritage: The Traditional Filipino Street Games. Believing that the Games are a cultural treasure, the Foundation is advocating the revival of the Filipino Games (i.e. “Larong Pinoy”) back in the mainstream of society amidst modern times.

The Foundation is the using the Larong Pinoy advocacy to promote

  • Patriotism (in a fun way)
  • Family Bonding, and
  • Community Togetherness

Through “play”, Magna Kultura engages fellow-Filipino to let them experience the Filipino Spirit. In a creative and fun way, Magna Kultura instills Patriotism; at the same time, make them realize that the games are Heritage Games played by their parents, their grandparents, and that these are truly Filipino games; making the new generation proud of a culture of play handed from generation to generation. Magna Kultura believes that the Games will make them proud to be part of the rich Filipino heritage.
