Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray will host a web series dedicated to Philippine Arts. The show, called Kultura 101, is a 5-episode program in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, showcasing the country’s arts and food.
“It’s a light-hearted web series where I share my passion for aspects of Filipino culture whether it be our textiles, our dances, our food,” Catriona said Wednesday, February 3 at the virtual conference of the NCCA’s programs for Arts month.
“These are all the things that through the platform of being online is something that we can share not just with [the] Filipinos here in the Philippines but also those who are abroad who haven’t had the opportunity to come home. Those who feel away from their families,” the Filipino-Australian singer said who is also the NCCA’s arts ambassador.
A short teaser was shown during the press conference of what to expect from the show. It will stream on February 20 on the NCCA and Catriona’s Facebook pages.
This is the second year Catriona is working with the NCCA. In 2020, she was appointed as its ambassador and traveled around the country to promote the organization’s programs. She also toured the provinces of La Union, Laguna, and Zamboanga as part of the Raise Your Flag series.
Aside from NCCA, Catriona is also a spokesperson for the Department of Trade and Industry’s “One Town, One Product” campaign. – Alexa Villano/Rappler.com
