    as part of the 11th Annual KULTURA Filipino Arts Festival:

    TAYO: A CLUTCH & NAV Exhibit

    TAYO is inclusive. TAYO is us celebrating our identities. TAYO is about love, family, and friendship. TAYO is power found within the arts. TAYO is decolonizing and evolving into better representations of us. TAYO is about hoping that you can connect with our lives.

    TAYO is a challenge to stand, an invitation to build, and a celebration for us. Rooted from the Tagalog, the meaning of tayo alters depending on pronunciation (/tæ-yoh/ vs. /tæ-yô/), and ultimately, differentiating itself from kami (a word synonymous with tayo, but renders a more exclusive meaning of us).

    This exhibit explores the very distinct and very diverse identities of Filipinx-Canadians — examining where they intersect and stray from each other. Our identity is something we share with ourselves and others.
