The Active Archive Volumes (in Progress)
The Active Archive Volumes aims to mount a series of interactive theatre events, creative community dialogues, and local history workshops. Occupying accessible public spaces and alternative venues, the project spotlights largely overlooked histories of minority groups, intersectional cultural history, and unrepresented social justice legacies

My Baryo, My Borough: A Creative Celebration of the Filipino Community in Queens, NY. (In Progress)
My Baryo, My Borough... uses art and creativity to celebrate the Filipino/Filipino-American community in Queens, NY. Through public art programs and creative story sharing, we welcome the broader NYC community in celebrating Queens through the Filipino / Filipino American lens. Central to the project is a community-based oral history collection intended to document and share the local history of the Filipino Community in Queens, NY. The project will culminate in a multidisciplinary public sharing of the collected stories.
