Community Care: Art, history and culture of Filipino labour in Hamilton, ON (Part 1)

Inaanyayahan namin kayo sa dalawang-parteng pagtitipon kung saan magbibigay puwang tayo sa usapin ng pagmamalasakit sa isat-isa, kasama ang Filipinas of HamOnt at Workers Art and Heritage Centre.

We invite you to join this two-part workshop to discuss community care with Filipinas of HamOnt, Workers Art and Heritage Centre, and Solidarity Place.

Register for Part I of this workshop here.

Part 1: Includes a tour of the Workers Art Heritage Centre's exhibit Work in Progress, and an art zine making workshop that will start conversations between participants about their experiences of community care and labour. The collaboratively made, anonymously shared document aspires to make visible the experiences and recognize the concerns of care workers. Facilitator Sylvia Nickerson will invite workshop participants to write words, stories and make drawings reflecting their lived experience of care workers labour, and to create recommendations for what the wider community can do to care for the care workers. This material, assembled into booklet form, will be reproduced and shared with the wider community through WAHC, Solidarity Place, Filipinas of HamOnt and its allies.

Part II of this workshop series will happen in August 2023, with details yet to be announced.

WAHC wishes to acknowledge the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Hamilton, the Province of Ontario, CUPE National, the Provincial Building and Construction Trades Council of Ontario, the Canada Council for the Arts and OSSTF for their support of our exhibitions and ancillary programs.
