The Philippine Arts Council presents Contemplating the Tapestry of Filipino-Canadian Connections, an art exhibit that aims to celebrate the diverse cultural narratives, shared histories, and interconnected experiences between the Filipino and Canadian communities. Through visual art, it explores the intricate threads that weave together the fabric of Filipino-Canadian identity and heritage.

This exhibit is in commemoration of 75 years of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Canada, May Asian Heritage Month, and June Philippine Heritage Month, and presented with the support of the Edmonton Philippine International Centre (EPIC), Philippine Consulate General Calgary and Alberta Immigration and Multiculturalism.

This dance video premiered for May Asian Heritage Month with CanAsian Arts Network, and is being shared publicly for June Philippine Heritage Month.

This dance piece is set to the Filipino lullaby “Ugoy ng Duyan” (In the Rocking of the Cradle) by Philippine National Artist Lucio San Pedro, conveying the warmth and security of a mother’s embrace. The piece evokes the soothing comfort of maternal love, inviting one to bask in the nostalgia of one’s own memories. It is a celebration of the power of love and the enduring connection between mother and child, offering a moment of respite from the chaos of the world and a reminder of the solace that can be found in the refuge of love.

Paglalayag: the Philippines to Canada Journey chronicles the stories of migration, and the lives of Filipinos in Alberta.

Paglalayag is the Filipino word for voyage or journey. This documentary relates the stories of Filipinos: those who arrived in the 1960s: the teachers; nurses; caregivers; temporary foreign workers; the contributions and achievements; and the importance of heritage with Filipino-Canadians.

This video project is presented with the support of the Canadian Heritage, Government of Canada and Alberta Ministry of Culture, MultiCulturalism and Status of Women.
