Register now for ANAK's PAGPAPANATILI Oral History Youth Forum & Gala 2017 on Friday May 26, 2017 at the Manitoba Museum (190 Rupert Avenue).

ANAK is proud to partner with the Manitoba Museum in its Bringing Our Stories Forward campaign. Filipino-Canadian youth, age 15 to 20, from across Winnipeg will have an opportunity to be part of the museum's important evolution. Through youth-lead dialog and discussion on the importance of our cultural identity and history as Filipino-Canadians in Manitoba, participants will take on this year's theme: PAGPAPANATILI (to preserve; to protect). A special oral history workshop lead by Kathryn Boschmann, Assistant Curator (Immigration) at the Manitoba Museum, will provide students with the skills needed for the day long workshops.

The one-day forum concludes with a Gala Dinner at Pampanga Restaurant (349 Henry Avenue), an evening celebration with community supporters, parents, and guests featuring participant presentations and performances.

Lunch and dinner will be provided to participants. Through the support of our valued sponsors, registration is completely free of charge!

The Philippine Heritage Council of Manitoba (PHCM) Inc. hosted its 2017 Youth Forum on Building Success on April 6, 2017 in Daniel McIntyre Collegiate Institute’s (DMCI) multipurpose room, 720 Alverstone Street.

The event, held annually and now in its third year, aims to instil the importance of education and hard work, promote involvement in the Filipino and wider community, and inspire high school and post-secondary students to pursue engaging and fulfilling careers. Approximately 60 students, parents, teachers and community members were in attendance to listen to six guest speakers share their stories of how they discovered their passions and career path, the experiences they had, and the choices they made along the way.
