Pinoys of Perth

We’re working alongside the Convenors for Filipino Interests Perth (funded by the Office of Multicultural Interests) to bring you Pinoys of Perth, a collection of Filipino stories in preparation for Harmony Week.

Working with storyteller and spoken word artist Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa, we’ll be crafting eight stories with respected members of the Perth Filipino community. These stories will cover themes of identity, migration, family, faith, and love.

This project aims to capture stories of Filipino migrant experiences and give Filipino Australians a voice within their own cultural community as well as the wider Western Australian community. It seeks to raise awareness of the Filipino identity/ies, cultural and religious practices, challenges faced around migrating, settling and living in Western Australia.

Stay tuned, our Harmony Week event details are coming soon.
