In a feature on Ayala Museum’s website, Mariles Gustilo (Director of Ayala Museum & Senior Director for Arts & Culture of Ayala Foundation) says “Inspire Every Day are words we live by in Ayala Museum. Through our programs & facilities, we strive daily to instill our visitors with a sense of wonder, creativity and pride in being Filipino. Inspire Every Day is also a worldview. It is an invitation to inspire others each day, in no matter how small a way, so the world will be a better place.”
