Nine colleges and universities in Eastern Visayas converged at Visayas State University in Baybay City, Leyte for a showdown of creativity and talent. 

The regional leg of Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC) conducted a one-day event, dubbed the Culture and Arts Festival, on October 27, 2017, Friday.

“The conduct of this Culture and the Arts Festival sets the stage towards a more meaningful appreciation of our own culture,” says Dr. Dominador O. Aguirre, President of PASUC-8 and Eastern Visayas State University.
