HISTORYA 2: The Filipino Culture and Identity in a Multicultural World

HISTORYA 2 builds on the success of the HISTORYA 1: Walking Through the Story of the Filipino People held in September 2018 in Edmonton. This interactive exhibit showcased Philippine history and culture as far back as 10 million years ago up to the present.

HISTORYA 2 offers a two-part learning series of visual and intercultural dialogues about the historical and cultural experiences of Filipinos as a way of building bridges across cultures.

PART I:

The first day of the learning series features Historya 1, which is a video presentation of the 2018 event to set the historical and cultural context of Filipino culture.

My HISTORYA is a story telling session of personal stories and insights on the migration of Filipinos to Alberta presented through various art forms and performances. My HISTORYA showcases a glimpse of the migration history of one of the fastest growing immigrant communities in the Alberta province.

PART II:

Wednesday, September 30 , 2020 (4:00 – 5:30 PM – Live Event; 5:30 – 7:00 PM – Replay)

Dialogues on the Filipino Diaspora: Philippine history and Filipino culture is an interactive learning activity where participants explore historical, economic, social and political conditions in the Philippines that explain push and pull factors of Filipino migration.

The event will culminate with participants engaged in a mutual learning and reflection in defining the Filipino identity in the midst of a diverse multicultural society and find the bridging points where cultures meet and learn from each other.
