Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts and Culture
Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts & Culture is a multiple award-winning, charitable community organization based in Toronto. We create a safe space for Filipino-Canadian youth, both second generation and newcomers, to overcome multiple barriers that prevent them from meaningful engagement in society. At Kapisanan, youth activate their creativity to explore identity, fostering pride and self-confidence, inspiring and empowering them to realize their full potential.
Thoughts About Art and Community
There has never been a centralized, youth-driven, arts-based community organization offering ethno-specific programs to Filipino-Canadians in the GTA, until now, at Kapisanan. We aim to provide a safe meeting place and platform for Filipinos to come together and share experiences, explore their identities through participation in the arts, develop their leadership (including professional and entrepreneurial) skills, and explore their culture on their own terms.
