The Hinabi Project

   The Art of Philippine Textiles


Project Sponsor: Philippine American Writers and Artists, Inc (PAWA), the organizer of the Hinabi project, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and has been active in the community for over a decade. Its main goal is to create and encourage literature and arts for the preservation and enrichment of Filipino and Filipino American historical and cultural values. “Since 2009, we have held our monthly literary and performance series in collaboration with Arkipelago Books, the Bayanihan Center, the Filipino American Center at the SF Public Library, the Manilatown Heritage Foundation, Kundiman, Achiote Press, Poets & Writers, Oakland Asian Cultural Center, Eth-Noh-Tec, Eastwind Books of Berkeley, Kearny Street Workshop, and Bird & Beckett Books. We are invested in creating venues for Filipino American artists, and have worked to grow our community across ethnic and aesthetic boundaries. We believe it is important to provide access, and opportunity, which we have also done through fiscal sponsorship of community artists.”
