Hello, friends!

FiRE will be hosting our second annual DIWANG PINAY: Light of the Nation, Ilaw Ng Bayan on Saturday, April 25 at Judson Memorial Church in NYC!  We are looking for PINAY (Filipina) artists and performers to grace our stage and gallery that night! Again, we will be showcasing and celebrating the art of Pinays through performance and visual art. We are reaching out to you hoping you can kindly/enthusiastically forward this message to your Pinay artist friends! (switched the order!) We’d be honored to showcase them at our event, so please HELP US GET THE WORD OUT BY FORWARDING THIS EMAIL TO ALL THE FILIPINAS YOU KNOW WHOSE ART YOU LOVE! 

In any shape or form, Filipinas for Rights and Empowerment would love to get in touch with Filipina women artists locally, nationally, or internationally currently producing creative work which rightfully reflects our community.  I’ve enclosed the more detailed call for our Silent Auction and performer slots below if you’d like to know more.  If you need to contact us with questions and concerns, please email diwangpinay@gmail.com or check out our temporary information space at:

Thank you in advance for all your help and consideration, we really appreciate the effort!
