‘Pamumulaklak’ discussion on cultural works on issues affecting marginal women slated on October 22

Moderated by KASIBULAN member Yllang Montenegro, guest speakers Elaine Clemente, Marra Lanot, and Faye Cura will talk about their past and present engagements on various women’s advocacies such as social justice, women empowerment, ecofeminism, foregrounding of local art, championing of indigenous materials, and the artist’s role as citizen.

The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), together with Kababaihan sa Sining at Bagong Sibol na Kamalayan (KASIBULAN), presents “Pamumulaklak,” a discussion on cultural works on issues affecting marginal women that resonate with the artworks of visual artist Imelda Cajipe Endaya, slated on October 22, Saturday at 3pm, at the CCP Main Gallery. The discussion will be live streamed via the CCP and CCP VAMD Facebook Pages.

Moderated by KASIBULAN member Yllang Montenegro, guest speakers Elaine Clemente, Marra Lanot, and Faye Cura will talk about their past and present engagements on various women’s advocacies such as social justice, women empowerment, ecofeminism, foregrounding of local art, championing of indigenous materials, and the artist’s role as citizen.

Clemente will share about the beginnings of KASIBULAN and how its activities became spaces for empowerment, not just of women artists but also of communities.

Writer Lanot will give a historical account of activism by women artists and writers through a pre-recorded sharing about the Concerned Artists of the Philippines Women’s Desk in the early 1980s.

Gantala Press’ Faye Cura will present a situationer on women’s issues and struggles, as well as the importance of connecting with grassroot communities and the role of publication in making these connections visible.

There will also be pop-up stores featuring artworks, crafts, and books by KASIBULAN, Gantala Press, Amihan, and RUWA at the Pasilyos outside the Main Gallery.
