A Latin Perspective on Preserving Cultural Heritage
With Prof Eliane C. Karp de Toledo
March 27, Tuesday, 2:00 - 5:00 pm

The National Museum and Museum Foundation of the Philippines invites you to attend a very special lecture by anthropologist and former First Lady of Peru, Madam Eliane C. Karp de Toledo at the Ablaza Hall of the National Museum on March 27, 2:00 - 5:00 pm.

Mrs. Toledo is presently teaching as a visiting lecturer at Stanford University in California . As an anthropologist, she teaches courses related to indigenous peoples and their social inclusion to democracy in Latin American countries. As a diplomat, she practices what she preaches, presiding over various philanthropic entities, one of which is the Administrative Council of the Pacha Foundation for Change. This Foundation places special emphasis on the design of sustainable development projects based on traditional and communal organizations and the development of productive skills to promote the comparative economic advantages of the Peruvian biodiversity and its rich potential for ecotourism.

In relation to her areas of expertise, Mrs. Toldeo will discuss biodiversity, cultural heritage and the creation of alternatives sources of income such as eco-tourism managed by the indigenous communities.

The Museum of the Filipino People is found along Finance Road just off Padre Burgos. For information and reservation, please call Ms. Elvie Magpayo or Ms, Patricia Limon at 404 -2685 or Ms. Flor Cortez at 722-9073.
