What does growing up in Canada look like?
According to Statistics Canada, Filipino-Canadian youth are not, on average, doing well in education and employment after they leave high school. Members from the Filipino Youth Transitions in Canada (FYTiC) project are conducting research to find out why.
Initial findings from the research bring to light issues facing Filipino-Canadian youth such as relationships with parents and peers, discrimination, and other challenges to belonging.
On March 3rd, FYTiC in partnership with Kapisanan will be hosting an intimate showcase featuring Filipino-Canadian spoken-word artists, playwrights, and visual artists. These artists will be showcasing artwork that speak to the research themes and what it means for them to grow up in Canada.
