    Ambassador Petronila Garcia, the first woman ambassador to represent the Philippines in Canada, will be the guest speaker at the opening reception.

As well, Professor Leonora Angeles of UBC’s School of Community and Regional Planning and the UBC Social Justice Institute will deliver a talk on immigrant youths and the community, and women’s issues on May 19, from 2-3 PM.

    The exhibit will travel to the Philippine Embassy in Ottawa in September 2018, incorporating the works of two members of Ottawa’s artistic community, Melanie Yugo and Kristina Corre.

    Essence will be presented in cooperation with the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver, UBC’s Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice (GRSJ), Filipino Music and Art Foundation in BC and the Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society.
