Event description

'Malakas ang loob'

'To strengthen from the inside'

To amplify what’s within.

In the space we created, we unlearn all that has been imposed onto us, what we have been taught to see in ourselves and the world around us. Nos reconscientizamos, we harvest a new awareness. We go inwards, deep within ourselves, we find our roots: that which nourishes our soul, ancestral love and knowledge. Never lost - we are lost.

They have always been there, waiting to be (re)called.

The truth. Our truth. Com carinho. 透明になる

De dentro a dor vem; the dismissed scars on our bodies, words taken from our mother-tongues.

In this space, we invite you to ask yourself: What’s been taken from you?

We ask that you leave all that does not fit in your mouth at the door. Be unafraid. Let the shame flow through and away from you, suelta la verguenza. Here, we heal. We share. We acknowledge. We remember. We feel. We celebrate.

Nós _________ .


That is the bravest thing we can do.
