The PAL Artist Retreat gathers artists, writers, curators and
cultural workers across disciplines for the purpose of fostering community,
collaboration and intergenerational dialogue within the Filipino community and
the broader contemporary art world. This day-long convening will include a mix
of panels, breakouts and conversations on strategies for visibility,
representation, support, mentorship and other possibilities.
The retreat features a presentation by artist Janna Añonuevo

second-generation Filipino American and her relationship to place through
photography, installations, performances and participatory projects. She is the founder
and editor of Filipino American Artist Directory, an annual publication and
initiative to connect and promote artists of Filipino heritage in the U.S. and
