Event description


Grupo Kalinangan, in partnership with Clock In by AyalaLand Offices and Baloy's Bakeshop, and co-presented by GCash, present you the third of our 4-part talk series:

PAMANA TALKS: Community and Heritage

For our 3rd installment of PAMANA TALKS, we talk about community as the center of any heritage conservation initiative. We present to you a number of case studies of individuals, organizations and local groups that engage the community on the potential of historic sites and intangible cultural heritage for socio-economic development.

Join us the Saturday October 12, 2019, from 8:30am to 1:30pm, at Clock In, Ayala North Exchange, Ayala Ave. cor. Salcedo St., Makati City, for this one-of-a-kind session with our speakers who come from various non-government, grassroots and even online organizations that have successfully engaged the citizens to promote and preserver their community's cultural heritage. Also, in celebration of Museum and Galleries Month, we also invite you to take part in the launch of a groundbreaking nationwide heritage initiative!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Various parking options are available within Ayala North Exchange Mall.

What are your payment options?

You may pay for your tickets via Paypal (debit/credit card) or GCash! You may also register and pay via bank deposit as well, or pay at the venue (although seats are not guaranteed and door rates are higher than paying online). Discounts for students, PWDs, senior citizens and GKI volunteers with active membership are available.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes, to facilitate faster registration and entrance to the venue.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes, you may transfer your ticket to another person, for as long as the ticket has been paid beforehand.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

We recommend registering the ticket under the name of the person who will be attending PAMANA TALKS for faster entrance to the venue.

Do you provide a Certificate of Attendance for this lecture?

Yes, upon request. Please indicate that you will be requiring a Certificate of Attendance during the online registration process.

Can I just walk into the venue and register?

Yes, however we cannot guarantee availability of slots as seats are very limited and are prioritized for attendees who registered via EventBrite. We recommend registering early to avail of discounted rates as compared to door rates.

Can you provide us an invitation for our representatives from the LGU?

Certainly! Please send an e-mail to info@grupokalinangan.org for a request for a letter of invitation. Please provide info on your request such as: addressee for the letter, names of participants and their contact details. Letter of invitation will only be sent via e-mail.

The LGU will sponsor our attendance, but can payment be made later after the event? Our mayor is currently busy/not around to sign our check vouchers.

We strictly implement a NO PAYMENT, NO ENTRY policy. If you will be requesting for sponsorship from the LGU, we suggest that online payment or bank deposit must be done first in order to secure your seats, then coordinate with your city/municipality administrator on how payment vouchers will be processed for your sponsorship. Unfortunately, we have experiences from LGUs in the past who have not paid despite our letter of invitations and requests for payment prior to the event they are attending, so we would like to avoid this situation as much as possible.

We shall do our best to accommodate your request for letters of invitation for the LGU, but we will also appreciate your early payment as well.

Will I be provided a copy of the slides presented by the speakers?

We will try our best to provide you with a copy of the presentation files, but we cannot guarantee this everytime, as they are still copyrighted content by the speakers. We encourage you instead to take notes during the lectures (which is more effective in retaining important points in memory). In addition, we shall be recording the sessions and upload the videos on Youtube for later viewing.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please e-mail info@grupokalinangan.org for more inquiries or questions.
