SM Dasmariñas supports local arts and culture through “Kapihan sa SM” event
In time for National Arts and Museums Month, SM City Dasmariñas hosted an event that focuses on local arts and culture of Cavite — specifically the museums, galleries, and even the products. Dubbed as “Kapihan sa SM”, SM Supermalls aims to promote local arts and culture as well as mall tenants.
The discussion for local tourism was spearheaded by Dr. Emmanuel Calario, President of Cavite Historical Society, who is also an author; and Museo De La Salle Director Cecile Gelicame, who shared some insights about museums and galleries as well as introduced the newest museum in Dasmariñas — the Museo De La Salle.
