Calling All Bay Area / SF Pilipinos to Kwentohan – Tell Kularts A Story!

July 3, 2014 in Classes & Workshops, Kwentohan, Uncategorized


A Call For Submissions: Kwentohan – Tell Me A Story

It is officially time to present Kularts newest project - Kwentohan – Tell Me A Story. Just like the title says we are asking you to tell us a story. But we’re looking for extraordinary stories that don’t fit the typical Pilipino story.

Does someone in your family have an embarrassing childhood story that they can never live down? Does your tito have a secretive second family everyone knows about but would never mention? Did your grow up in a small town where you were the only Filipino? Do you think that in a hundred years your future kin is going to be the first Pilipino President of the United States?

Those are the types of stories we’re looking for: unique, out of the ordinary but most importantly creative non-fiction stories about you and your loved ones we can ultimately transform into comics.

We will select up to five stories to make into short comics that will be featured on posters and/or murals in Bay Area locations in 2015.

(Note: Please read the guidelines below carefully, information from the poster has changed and you can read the prompts online/submit your entry via the link provided below).


1. To submit your story go to the Kwentohan Registration/Submission Form and fill out your registration information.

2. Read the four prompts provided and choose one.

3. Submit a creative non-fiction / flash prose, word limit of 300 – 1,000 words, in the space provided.

4. Stories must involve SF/Bay Area specific component. (IE you grew up in the Bay Area, you have roots in San Francisco, you’re currently residing in the Bay Area).

We are looking for a SF/Bay Area relation, after all the stories selected will be displayed around SF/Bay Area and we want to focus on the perspective of our local community.

5. With each entry there is a $10 submission/registration fee.

Deadline to submit is August 15!

We look forward to reading your stories! Good luck to everyone!

*Also look out for information regarding Kularts photo-comic workshop this summer and fall. We will open up registration soon!

If you missed the first Philippine Dance Workshop series now is your last opportunity to work with renowned Master Artist Jay Loyola and get your chance to perform in his upcoming production, Maseg: Typhoon in November.

The first series filled to capacity with dancers from all levels, but all loved the overall experience.

“I felt silly for missing the last one, saw the videos online and wanted to test myself and give it a try.”  “I enjoyed learning new steps, ways of moving, holding my body and posture.” 

“…Transformation and inspiration for contemporary movement from the traditional.”

Be sure to view pictures and watch footage of the previous workshop classes to get a glimpse into what you could do.
