Voice From The Field: Filipino Identity & Contemporary Cultural Practice

With all the conversations about Philippine culture, idenitity, indigeneity, appropriation going on, shouldn’t we all try to share a safe and tolerant space for meaningful dialogue? Excited for this program as it bridges varied views and disciplines.

Spend a few days in October with @culturaid @houseofgongs @kulartspresents @habifair and @museomuntinlupa as they discuss Filipino Identity and Contemporary Cultural Practice in the Philippines and the Diaspora. Learn from people working in the field and uncover varying perspectives in thought and practice. Now, more than ever is a time to bridge interdisciplinary voices and participate in meaningful dialogue to better understand how our varied “Filipino” experiences have shaped the way we think, move, and work. Join in, have fun, and be part of the very first-ever international Voices from the Field Program.
