PPC Historical Summary

The Naga City-based Wikimedia affiliate, PhilWiki Community (PH-WC), moved for branches to be established in other Philippine regions, whereby a resolution was passed on June 25, 2021 to this effect. The soonest viable user group extension was a Manila Branch to complement the Bicol headquarters, henceforth a provisional Manila Community was set up. On December 02, 2022, two PH-WC Past Presidents, Juan Bautista H. Alegre and Ralff Nestor S. Nacor co-founded a startup PhilWiki Community - Manila; but despite this, on December 14, 2022, the seminal community itself concluded its own thematic goals, and thus formally became the independent Pilipinas Panorama Community (PPC) as a thematic Wikimedia organization.

Towards January 29, 2023, Wikimedia Philippines (WMPH) Past Chairman John Paul Antes joined the thematic community, giving stature to PPC as a composite of two Philippine affiliates: the defunct WMPH and the aforementioned PH-WC. The Pilipinas Panorama Community (PPC) hereby actively committed itself to advocate cultural heritage preservation in the Philippines, the passage of Freedom of Panorama (FoP) in the Philippines, and aligned itself with Wikimedia's ongoing Movement Strategy towards 2030.

Towards June 30, 2024, the co-founders of Wiki Advocates Philippines User Group, headquartered in Pasacao, Camarines Sur, namely Imelda Brazal and Anthony Diaz also joined the PPC roster, to manage the community's GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) initiative. This wholistic aggrupation of leading lights in the Philippine Wikimedia Movement propels PPC to the forefront of thematic advocacy.
