Pagwanawanan Art Festival 2018
On it’s 2nd year, Pagwanawanan Art Festival signals the start of a new nesting season through a series of low-impact pocket events that seeks to bring various communities together, using their talents in music, art, crafts, as a medium to educate both locals and tourists on our ecology and culture.
PAGWANAWANAN, translates as "baluarte," "stronghold," "guardian," or "to watch" in Ilocano. It is an invite for everyone to become guardians of a humble province, home to one of the world's most important creatures - Olive Ridley Sea Turtles (locally known as “pawikan”).These sea turtles nest on the shores of La Union and are considered keystone species that ensure the jellyfish population is controlled making our beaches safe to swim in and keep our reefs viable for fishes to lay eggs.
Let's mark our tur-trails of hope in San Juan, La Union with the following highlights of this year's Pagwanawanan Festival!
