I’ll be back at the Asian Art Museum in SF 3/5 & 3/6 for a large scale#baybayin performance with my kulintang friends (Kulintronica & Titania Buchholdt) playing while I write. I’ll also have art on display and short talk. This is a collaboration with international Japanese calligraphy artist Aoi Yamaguchiwho’ll have taiko drumming. You won’t want to miss this!
FALL IN LOVE WITH ART AGAIN.

May 16 – Asian Heritage Street Festival @ SF

June 6 – Pista sa Ngyon @ Vallejo
June 21 – Sangdiwa @ SF

Over the past 2 years, I’ve been slowing down doing Filipino events due to the following:
– Lack of quality of the Filipino festivals
– Increased cost of booths at festivals
– Less attendance
– A change in consumer behavior
– Less interest possibly due to our efforts of getting knowledge of Baybayin to the public has been working
So what’s this mean? It means that I’ve got to change things up by either changing my products or targeting non-Filipinos. It also means that next year, I’ll be focusing on my online school, documentary and producing events. The next one will be on November 14, 2015 at Fort Mason. See unKonference.org for more information.
I’ll be doing large scale #baybayin this Saturday 5/30 in SOMA at 2:30pm. Also check out Sammay, Tony, and Florante! https://www.facebook.com/events/1468262430132609/
