The Saysay Project was featured at the 7th Annual SCPASA Summit: Tomorrow in Retrospect on February 8, 2014 at UC Riverside. SCPASA Summit is a one-day conference providing students a wide variety of speakers, workshops, and activities as a means to develop their leadership growth. FilAm ARTS brought the Saysay Project to the Summit as an opportunity for students to share their stories as young Filipino and Filipino-Americans.
The Saysay Project Workshop facilitator, Carol Ojeda-Kimbrough and videographer, Rodney Cajudo, engaged students through topics such as the importance of family, language, food, and culture of being a Filipino in America.
Marvin Ordono, a recent college graduate and one of five children shared his story with the Saysay Project and speaks on his family dynamics and how it affected his upbringing.
Stay tuned for our upcoming collaboration event in March with one of our videographers, Rodney Cajudo as he launches “The Valor Project” – A storytelling project from the perspective of the people who lived and fought during WWII in the Philippines. Click here to check it out and support!
