Sunday Cipher: Fil Ams and their Festivals!

What would the Southern California Fil Am community be without the Festival of Philippine Arts and Culture (FPAC)? Here are some photos I took dedicated to the largest and longest-running multigenerational, pro-artist gathering of Fil Ams in the area. And if you're in San Diego, make sure to check out FilAmFest on Saturday, October 2nd.

Stuter causing trouble with his irreverent and provocative social critiques!

Bambu holding nothin back at his last FPAC performance.

The historic dearth of Filipino entrepreneurship only means we're hungrier and reaching higher. Support your local Filipino-owned businesses! Visit Buy Pinoy now!

Cool it down.

The Filipino food truck craze taking over FPAC! So delicious!

If you're in Florida on on Saturday, Sep. 25th, be sure to check out the 2nd Annual Filipino Pride Day! I will be displaying an exhibit on Filipinos in hip hop! How will this new community space in a region traditionally devoid of Filipino resources impact Fil Ams in the South? (My review of last year here.)
