In the past five years, the cooperation and exchanges between and among CCP and the KSS network have become more dynamic.  It is a continuing partnership and collaboration to further enrich, develop and promote arts and culture in the regions and the whole country.  It is also intended to  increase public participation in the arts,  promote artistic excellence and facilitate a vibrant collaboration between and among communities.   


The key areas of the partnership includes training & apprenticeship, touring & move-over productions, sharing of relevant cultural resource materials, access to arts & cultural information, venues & facilities; and participation in major cultural events.  Even with the establishment of regional art centers,  the CCP will continue to collaborate with all other organizations in the regions, either on a per program or project basis. The CCP is certain  that  the regional partnerships will result to the further flourishing of arts and culture in the whole country. 


On February 1, 2019 at the CCP Little Theater Lobby, the CCP will seal its cooperation with a new batch of partners and sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the following organizations:  Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Colleges Marbel-South Cotabato,  DMC College Foundation-Dipolog City,  Municipality of Sta.
