Get ready to be steeped in community-based knowledge and herstory this summer as we launch the next phase of our Sinigang Sundays with a four-part study series, starting this Sunday, July 3rd. Organized by the Philippine Women Centre of BC, Sinigang Sundays has been a regular, bi-weekly gathering space for Filipino women throughout the Coast Salish Territories to collectively build critical consciousness through a Filipina feminist lens. Simmered through the discussions that have emerged from our previous sessions, this upcoming study series will include four sessions on topics that reflect our realities as Filipino women in Canada.
The four-part study series will be on the following topics:
- July 3: Culture and identity
- July 17: History and legacy of PWC-BC
- August 7: Understanding the Caregiver Program
- August 21: Contradictions under capitalism
We will navigate each session using film, art, poetry, music and more as our multi-media handbooks and as our creative tools of resistance. We will use art to draw inspiration in order to create our own. Through each session, we hope to use our voices in order to create tools for our community’s broader participation and decision-making. We are building our knowledge not just for ourselves, but for building community leadership in order to create new avenues for change.
