General Workshop: Filipinos in the Arts

Why is it important to acknowledge Filipino artists?

We believe it is important to acknowledge Filipino artists throughout history because as individuals we naturally seek inspiration through relatable content. Filipino Americans are typically underrepresented and we feel the need to share this knowledge to further enhance awareness amongst our community.

Why don’t we see more Fil-am artists in the media today?

Like many people, our parents want us to pursue careers that are deemed “successful”. These careers are considered financially stable and may offer benefits that are otherwise not provided through a career in the arts. Furthermore, music and performing arts lack a strong Filipino presence.

Who are some well-known Filipino artists?

Lea Salonga, Dante Basco, AJ Rafael, Pia Alonzo (Miss Universe), Jeremy Passion, Bruno Mars, and more!
