Theatre Aminhan is continuing their intimate and informal on-going play reading series to showcase Filipino plays & works. These readings bring theatre artists interested in Filipino culture together around a new play on the regular in Toronto.
The Workers Arts & Heritage Centre (WAHC) has partnered with the Hamilton & District Labour Council to present an online conversation, Revolutionary Graphics of the IWW with artist, activist, and scholar Dylan Miner!
This talk will explore some of the political iconography of the Industrial Workers of the World, as seen in WAHC’s recent exhibit "One Big Union: The Revolutionary Graphics of the IWW" and what we can glean from it today in the current context and the importance of having graphic artists involved in social struggle.
This talk will take place on Zoom and will be facilitated by interdisciplinary artist Jo SiMalaya Alcampo. Join us on July 16, 2020 from 7-8 pm (EST)

The Museum of Contemporary Art presents Jo SiMalaya Alcampo: Singing Plants, as part of the Art of Propagation performative speaker series that aims to broaden perspectives on art and culture through acts, thinking and projects of cultivation, fermentation and propagation.
Jo will introduce us to the Singing Plants – keepers of indigenous knowledge, stories and memory. These banana plants respond to human touch with songs – the Hudhud chant of the Ifugao people – and sounds of bamboo instruments and gongs indigenous to the Philippines.
