Escol-Tara: Reliving Manila's Once Fabled Premier Street

Wazzup Pilipinas!

This coming Sunday, January 26, Heritage Conservation Society - Youth (HCS-Y) will be conducting a special, FREE walking tour in Escolta, Manila dubbed as "Escol-Tara: Reliving Manila's Once Fabled Premier Street".

The tour will feature the heritage buildings in the historic site in order to promote the conservation of Escolta. Joining the tour will be a team from China Central Television (CCTV) which will feature Escolta in one of their shows. This will be aired worldwide.

The HCS-Y is the youth arm of the Heritage Conservation Society (HCS). They aim to involve the Filipino youth in the appreciation and preservation of built heritage as an intrinsic part of our national and cultural identity. They advocate adaptive reuse as an alternative to demolishing old heritage sites. The organization focuses on educating other young people towards heritage awareness and preservation through advocacy projects, workshops, talks and art initiatives.

HCS is a non-stock, non-profit organization advocating the protection and preservation of our built heritage, cultural and historical sites and settings, thus upholding the Philippine Constitution that heritage and culture should be developed and preserved for national identity.

MEET-UP: 8:30 a.m. at The Original Savory Restaurant, Escolta Street, Manila
