This October, Philippine Women Centre of Ontario (PWC-ON) invites everyone to celebrate a decade filled of shared laughter, tears, music and militancy. The round of events will kick off at the opening of the “Maleta” [Suitcase] Art Exhibit on October 10th. “Maleta” is a community-based arts project where members of the community unpack their history of forced migration through collectively-created visual and performance art. The exhibit will be open to the public at the Beit Zatoun House until the end of the month.
