Project
The proposed Sugar Cultural Landscape of Negros and Panay Islands is an industrial landscape. According to Stuart (2012), “industrial heritage is rarely confined to a single location or site. More often it is a series of interrelated sites across a wide landscape that contains evidence of how the factors of production were organized, brought to a place where they were transformed into goods and services and from there distributed to their market, leaving waste and landscape change. The term ‘industrial landscape’ will be familiar to many as a way of referring to an area larger than an individual industrial place (such as a factory site) but less in spatial scale than a region.” The idea to nominate the Sugar Cultural Landscape of Negros and Panay Islands was a result of a proposal to nominate the Sugar Centrals of Negros Island as a World Heritage Site. This came about during a gathering of heritage professionals in February 2015. There was a discussion on the restoration work being undertaken at the Chapel of the Angry Christ at the Victorias Milling Company. And the group agreed that the sugar central had potential for nomination to the World Heritage list. The proposed property is an evolved landscape, which according to Stuart (2012), is “the result of social, economic, administrative or religious activity and have developed their present form by direct or indirect action and/or association with and in response to the natural environment of the area.” A subcategory of this is a continuing landscape, which Stuart (2012) describes as “one that retains an active economic and social role in contemporary society closely associated with a traditional way of life (in the broadest possible sense) and in which the evolutionary process is still in progress, but at the same time it exhibits significant material evidence of its evolution over time.” It was then suggested that a serial nomination be proposed since there are many intact sugar centrals around Negros Island. Initially, this serial nomination was to include historic sugar centrals such as the Ma-ao Sugar Central in Bago City, Victorias Milling Company in Victorias City; Hawaiian Philippines Company in Silay City, Central Azucarera de La Carlota in La Carlota City and Lopez Sugar Corporation in Sagay City, Negros Occidental; and the Bais Sugar Central in Bais City, Negros Oriental. Aside from the sugar centrals, the proposed serial nomination will also include the Historic Center of Silay, Hacienda Santa Rosalia in Manapla, Infante Heritage House (Casa Hacienda de Guadalupe) in La Carlota, Gen. Aniceto Lacson Historical Landmark in Talisay, the Montilla-Suatengco Heritage House in Pulupandan, and the executive and staff housing complex of the former San Carlos Milling Corporation, all in Negros Occidental. The coverage was expanded to include Panay Island, given that the potential nomination could also include Historic Port City of Iloilo, a major global trading port for Philippine sugar.
