I’ll be taking part of a lecture/panel discussion at UP Diliman 7/25. Yeah, I know it’s last minute but that’s how it goes here in the Philippines 🙂
While the topic isn’t strictly Baybayin, I’ll inject it as much as possible since its about Identity and Culture.
See ya there!
TOPIC: Filipina/o American Identity and Culture: There Is More to Us Than Just The Immigrant Narrative
WHEN: 5:00pm-8:00pm, Wednesday, July 25, 2012
WHERE: GT-Toyota Asian Center Seminar Room, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City
I’m currently in the Philippines doing a lectures, art shows, a product launch, research and continuing filming my documentary. I started filming some street scenes around Katipunan, Cubao and Edsa this this week. Interviews will also start this week as well.
There’s a lot more going on in Manila since I was last here in 2010 and to help document those observations on this trip, I’ve setup a blog for BaybayinFilm.com.
On 7/13 & 7/14, I’ll be taking part of a seminar-workshop at Bahay Baybayin in Cainta, Rizal. My lecture will be on the 2nd day (7/14). I’ll also be showing my new art series for the 1st time in the Philippines: Times New Roman X Baybayin as previously exhibited at the San Francisco Philippine Consulate.
Please call the # on the flyer to see if there are tickets still available. Can’t make it? I’ll have another event the last week of July. Details soon….
