The Filipino in Me - Insights into Living Heritage

Entry by Mila Bongco Philipzig. Edmonton, Alberta


Artist's Statement

I organized to have HIGANTES for the first Filipino Fiesta in Edmonton and with the help of members from the University of the Philippines Alumni Association Edmonton (UPAAE) - we managed to have five Higantes figures in the first Edmonton Filipino Fiesta in 2016.

I made an imitation of the UP Sablay for one of the Higantes figures.
