Arts & Culture
Cultural heritage is an expression of the soul of a people. Manifested through the likes of arts, including craft, fine art, music, performance, folklore and dance, it is a reflection of who we are and what we believe in. The Lopez Group supports arts and culture with a vision of strengthening national pride and consciousness toward nation building.
Fostering Arts & Culture, The Lopez Way.

Articles were edited, buildings of publications sequestered, and journalists brutally intimidated and silenced. This was the Philippine press under the Martial Law.
