The National Archives of the Philippines (NAP) conducted an Echo-Seminar on Oral Narratives last February 10-11, 2020 at the NAP audiovisual room in PPL Building, Paco, Manila. The workshop was organized by the Training and Information Division (TID) headed by its Chief, Ms. Gina M. Papa. It was attended by twenty-two NAP employees from different Divisions.

The two-day Echo-Seminar was facilitated by Mr. Samuel John P. Cantiga, an Archivist I from the Archives Collection and Access Division (ACAD). Mr. Cantiga participated in the workshop in Malaysia last October 2019.

The echo-seminar served as a venue to further understand Oral Narratives especially for NAP’s Local Community Archives initiative. Topics discussed were principles and issues of Oral History, as well as interview and transcription techniques.
