Batang Bagani Kiddie Art Project 

The National Quincentennial Committee (NQC) invites Filipino parents and/or guardians to showcase the creativity of their kids through drawing or painting in Batang Bagani Kiddie Art Project Online.  With the theme Victory and Humanity in Me, the project aims to feature the meaning of victory (achievement, success) and humanity (compassion, kindness) in a Filipino child (e.g., what it takes to be an achiever yet kind Filipino child; what makes a Filipino child a champion but with a big heart for others). This is in solidarity with the 500th anniversary of the Victory at Mactan, the Philippine part in the first circumnavigation of the world, and other related events, collectively known as the 2021 Quincentennial Commemorations in the Philippines (2021 QCP).

Rationale

Batang Bagani (literally ‘Kiddie Hero’) is chosen as the name of the project to unleash the ideas of heroism and kindness in a Filipino child through art.  Whereas, the theme is derived from the official theme of the 2021 QCP: Victory and Humanity.  Victory represents the triumph of our heroes since the Battle of Mactan, while Humanity embodies the kindness our ancestors in Homonhon shown to the sick and hungry crew of the Magellan-Elcano expedition, the first to voyage around the planet, 500 years ago.

Goal

Gather 500 children’s artworks to be featured every day on the official Facebook page of the NQC (@nqc2021) and website (www.nqc.gov.ph) and on special quincentennial publication, postcards, bookmarks or collateral (non-profit).

Qualified
