Sunday Jump is curating the Literary Arts at the 26th Annual Festival of Philippine Arts and Culture (FPAC) at Echo Park Lake on October 14th, 2017. Organized by FilAm Arts, this event will be held at Echo Park Lake!
Katipunan Poetry Slam Slams are competitive, entertaining, and interactive. Originating in the 80s in Chicago, the excitement of competition regularly packs houses, drawing in attendees intrigued by energetic and thought-provoking performances, united by the sense of community that a slam can facilitate. For Filipinos, the modern poetry slam is an echo of the balagtasan (a poetic, political debate). Continuing the work of those who have paved the way before us, from Jose Rizal to Jessica Hagedorn, the slam provides a platform for us to showcase the variety of voices and points of view amongst Filipinos and Filipino-Americans today. Our already confirmed poets include published authors and seasoned slam champions who are recognized both locally and nationally. There's no limit to what we do with our words, now let us get the community to hear our stories! We are asking you to support Filipino art and culture by becoming a sponsor for this event. Your support will help provide prize money for the slam winner, cover expenses for equipment and supplies, and additional Literary Arts programming needs such as an interactive pavilion with performances and workshops.
