Art is a vital component of our cultural identity.
With the recently approved SoMa Pilipinas District, now more than ever it is essential for us to courageously discuss the diverse and powerful iterations of Philippine arts in the works of artists in the diaspora.
The event brings together funders, local and international artists for meaningful interaction and exchanges. Focused on the next generation of practitioners and creators we invite you to come share your experiences, your best practices and challenges!
*Early Bird discount price! Now til April 30th*
5/13 Friday, Kick-off the event with a Kamayan Dinner at Bayanihan Center to honor those amazing artistic leaders who have highly influenced Philippine Dance & Culture in the diasporas.
5/14 Saturday, dive deeply into what it means to be the new generation of practicing artists in North America who create works rooted in the Philippines arts.
Participate in the discussion on tough issues we face today:
breaking cultural appropriation
economics of the arts
credits, copyrights & ownership
