kalinawan b&w

Kaya Collaborative is working with its diasporic community to think globally and act locally. The theme for their upcoming event is “Kalinawan,” which is the Tagalog word for clarity, peace, tranquility, or discovery of something lost.

As part of Kaya Collaborative’s efforts to build bridges back to the Philippines, they are bringing together Seattle artists to explore ideas around identity, as Filipinos and Filipino-Americans of the diaspora. The event will showcase various mediums of art of our community.

Performers and artists include John Eklof (spoken word), Jazz Espiritu (music), and others.

Kalinawan Arts + Open Mic happens on Friday, November 20 at 6:30 p.m. at Hillman City Collaboratory, 5623 Ranier Ave S., Seattle, WA. Admission is free. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
