PAWIS is Looking For You!
Filipino Advocates for Justice and PAWIS leaders along with other California Domestic Workers Coalition groups have been working hard over the past weeks to reach domestic workers all over the Bay Area and Sonoma County as a part of our Organizing Drive Campaign. We have been hitting the parks, supermarkets, and churches to help achieve our goal of organizing 10% of the domestic worker population in California. We firmly believe that by reaching those who are directly affected by this law, we not only provide information, but also grow our movement to win even stronger protections in the coming years! If interested contact FAJ’s organizer Fiona Cruz: fcruz@filipinos4juctice.org or 510-465-9876 (via How You Can Help)

Add Architecture, Stir Memory: TX-JAPAN
A Workshop Production by Shay Youngblood

Saturday, 28 June 2014 - 5-6:30 pm 
Salvage Vanguard Theater, Austin, Texas
Free and open to the public

What is the effect of memory on architecture? 
What is the effect of architecture on memory?
How do our early memories of home shape who we become? 
Shay Youngblood traveled from Texas to Tokyo in the spring of 2011 to ask these questions in the form of interviews with Japanese creatives, that would be the basis for a novel set in Hawaii and Japan. Ten days after she arrived, Japan experienced the strongest earthquake in its history, which triggered a powerful tsunami and setting off a nuclear disaster. 

In this multimedia performance Youngblood shares her experience living and traveling in Japan, her creative process and invites the audience to participate in shaping the work-in-progress.

Eye of the Fish - A Personal Archipelago

Eye of the Fish is a deft, luminously intelligent examination of the Philippines that cross-cut between Francia’s recollections of the Philippines of his youth and accounts of his travels through the archipelago over the past two decades. The Philippines that Francia explore is a country indelibly marked by both Spanish and American colonialism, a collection of over 7,000 islands where cultural alliances and political ideology have pushed aside identity politics, and where traditional beliefs both mimic and subvert conventional Christian piety. Francia’s odyssey takes him the lenght of the nation, from Batanes in the north to the Muslim Jolo and Mindanao regions of the south, and from the rugged mountain hideaways of revolutionary freedom fighters to the well-appointed salons of the political and cultural elite. Painters and priests, island shamans and small-town politicians, cultists, feminists, and infamous first ladies all make an appearance in this imaginative and idiosyncratic exploration of “home.” Through their stories, and through his own memories of life in the Philippines and the United States, Francia reflects on the hybridity that is simultaneously the burden and the benediction of the Philippines - and of his own mestizo self.
Luis H. Francia is a poet, journalist, and nonfiction writer. His poetry books include The Arctic Archipelago and Other Poems and MUSEUM OF ABSENCES. He is the author of Memories of Overdevelopment: Reviews and Essays of Two Decades; the editor of Brown River, White Ocean: An Anthology of Twentieth Century Philippine Literature in English; and co-editor, with Eric Gamalinda, of Flippin’: Filipinos on America, and of Vestiges of War: The Philippine-American War and the Aftermath of an Imperial Dream, 1899-1999, with Angel Velasco Shaw. The Beauty of Ghosts, poetry for the theater, premiered in 2007. He writes a monthly online column, “The Artist Abroad,” for Manila’s Daily Inquirer. Born and raised in Manila, he lives in New York City and teaches at New York University and City University of New York (CUNY). 

Available at Arkipelago Books.
