The Kapwa Festival supports new collaborative works and mentorship of emerging and professional artists in understanding that we all come from somewhere, from someone, from many.
Unraveling our ancestral pasts, weaving our histories together, each of us, one patch of a quilted blanket. Many have arrived in Vancouver with stories. Many who are at different stages of understanding their own indigeneity, in solidarity with First Nations who fight to keep their language or to keep the land and waters clean and free. Some are a part of the global diaspora, immigrants, refugees – all settlers, always learning, in process of decolonizing.
We honour those who have been here for centuries longer than Captain Vancouver was and we seek to connect our commonalities in traditions and human understanding through the equally deep, rich and beautifully interwoven First Nations cultures that have been built on storytelling. The Kapwa Festival offers a temporary time and space for collaboration between Filipinos in the diaspora and urban indigenous cultural artists.
Please RSVP to this event by getting a ticket through Eventbrite as seating is limited.Find out more »
