Workshop Presenters: PASACAT

PASACAT is a Philippine folk dance, but in San Diego, it began as the acronym for the Philippine-American Society and Cultural Arts Troupe. Today, PASACAT's mission is to preserve and promote Asian Pacific culture through the arts, thereby, extending goodwill and enhancing cultural understanding.

PASACAT, established in 1970, continues to contribute to the cultural enrichment of San Diego, California and Southwest Region of the United States. More than 40 performances are given yearly by the 60 member company to an audience totaling 16,000 for numerous educational, cultural, religious and social organizations. Major productions include the Junior Dance Concert, Extravaganza and Parol Festival.

The Art of Filipino Dance will be presented as a workshop at the Magkaisa Student Parent Conference this year! Get ready to dance!

Don't Miss Workshop Presenters: KAMP SD

The Kuya Ate Mentorship Program (KAMP) started informally in 2007 as a group of college and recently graduated college students who shared a common vision: to forge relationships with younger Filipin@ American youth in San Diego county in order to build critical knowledge about our identity, history and culture.

Initially designed as a series of sala talks, or open discussions in our living rooms, the founders of what was soon to be called KAMP realized that many of the youth we wanted to reach out to had no basic knowledge of Filipino American studies and history.

KAMP will be workshop presenters at Magkaisa High School conference this year. Make sure you stop by and say HELLO!
