Another year of awesomeness is about to kick off for KAPISANAN, as our good friend Rod Dioso (who exhibited at KULTURA back in 2008) exhibits his latest work at the Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts.

Rod’s artworks will make its appearance at the Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts (984 Queen Street West, M6J 1H1), as part of the Salon V Group Show. The exhibit runs from January 12 to 30, and the opening reception is on January 13, 7:00-10:00pm.

15% of all sales made at this event will be donated to the Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts and Culture. Be inspired! Tell all your friends, come out, and support Filipino talent!

KPC's Critical Filipino History Workshops continue this Thursday (Oct 16)

KPC’ers Alex & Myk are keeping the Critical Filipino History workshops rolling on this Thursday with a workshop entitled:

October 17 @ KPC!

October 16 @ KPC!

Of note, there was a controversy from Spanish athletes who made a controversial gesture imitating people of Chinese origin to show their “appreciation” in anticipation of the Beijing Olympics.  I personally didn’t feel offended, but hopeful that these Spanish athletes come to their senses & offer a full apology because even though I wasn’t offended, many other people were……
