Sentro Rizal

Welcome to the Sentro Rizal in Jakarta!

By virtue of Article XII, Sec.42 of the "National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009" (Republic Act No. 10066), the legal basis for the creation of a center for "the promotion of Philippine arts, culture and language throughout the world" was established. This is the Sentro Rizal.

The various Sentro Rizal offices abroad serves as the repository, inter alia, of all materials on Philippine arts, culture and language, in various forms which include books, digital video discs, films, magazines, artworks.

The Sentro Rizal organizes cultural programs and activities for Filipinos, especially the Filipino youth abroad, to promote appreciation and understanding of the entire spectrum of Philippine culture. It acts to provide Filipinos abroad the means to connect to their roots thereby instilling a strong sense of national identity and pride for being a Filipino.

The Sentro Rizal in Jakarta, Indonesia was inaugurated on 22 Nov 2015 with the Chairman of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts Hon. Felipe M. de Leon, Jr. in attendance.
