A Call to Filipina Visual Artists
The women of Babae - GABRIELA-USA and League of Filipino Students are proud to announce the 8th Annual Diwang Pinay (“Spirit of the Filipina”) 2010 in San Francisco. Diwang Pinay is an annual performance and art event in San Francisco showcasing Filipina/ Filipina-American performers, writers, and visual artists. Organized by women, for the artistic expression of women, Diwang Pinay is an evening dedicated to celebrating the contributions, struggles, and triumphs of Filipino women.
We are looking for Filipina artists of various artistic disciplines to showcase their art and to also donate one piece of work to the Diwang Pinay Silent Auction. All proceeds from the sale of your work will go toward sustaining Babae, and LFS community service projects.
We encourage artists to reflect on the theme of Lighting the Path For Generations to Come and illuminating the brilliance of our collective spirit. We are reaching out to you hoping you can forward this message to your Filipina artist friends! We'd be honored to showcase them at our event, so please HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!
Thank you in advance for all your help! We really appreciate the effort!
Babae - GABRIELA-USA, and League of Filipino Students
