UPRCP supports urban poor communities in their efforts to foster a culture that is progressive, nationalist, scientific and pro-genuine national development.
UPRCP develops educational modules on specific topics such as housing policy in the Philippines, designed for deeper understanding of urban poverty issues and discourse.
UPRCP explores different alternative forms and avenues of education and advocacy. Among these alternative education and advocacy activities are forums, symposiums and projects such as CineMaralita, a touring film festival about the Filipino urban poor and “Nanay Mameng, isang dula” a theater production that highlights the everyday struggle of the urban poor and is inspired by the life and times of the iconic urban poor leader Carmen Deunida.
UPRCP also facilitates capacity-building, art and culture education and art productions in urban poor communities and with network individuals, organizations and art and cultural associations.
