Pilipino Cultural Night 31

Who

The Pilipino Cultural Exchange (PCE) is an organization that provides a “home away from home” for anyone in the Cal Poly community who needs it. PCE is a club that consists of members from diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and goals, but together we are a family. 

What  

Pilipino Cultural Night (PCN) is an annual student-produced show put on by schools across California. PCN is a celebration of Pilipino and Pilipino-American culture, featuring a scripted play and performances from our traditional dance group KASAYAHAN, our choir ATING HIMIG and our contemporary and hip-hop dance group MODERN. The show allows young Fil-Ams to connect to their heritage through an understanding of historical and social issues. The celebration of culture provides a creative outlet for our performers and is a long-standing tradition for our club. Our goal is to not only raise awareness, but instill a sense of pride and community for all of those involved. For PCN 31, we have decided to name the show "Sariling Atin", which is translated to "our own" in Tagalog. We are excited to sharing our own show, our own stories, and our own culture with our community.

Set in the foundations of Pilipinx organizations all throughout California, Pilipino Cultural Night is a tradition that is an opportunity for students to learn about issues that are not only relevant in the Pilipinx-American community but in many marginalized communities across the country. PCN is meant to showcase the diverse talents of our members through choral performance, traditional and modern dance, acting, and stage production.

When

Curtains open on April 24, 2020 from 6-10PM, with the last show being on April 25, 2020 from 6-10PM. With a total of 2 show dates, we hope that whoever wants to experience this production will have ample opportunity to do so! 

Where

This year’s PCN will be taking place at the Clark Center for Performing Arts in Arroyo Grande, CA: 487 Fair Oaks Ave, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420

Why

The show is entirely student-run, encouraging participants to develop and improve upon skills that could be applicable in the real-world, such as, time management, communication, and leadership. This show also strives to educate students on social issues, and to help them discover their passions outside of a classroom setting.  Additionally, the nature of this show conveys the message that the people you see every day experience many different things that may stem from differences in culture, gender, tradition, socioeconomic status, environment, etc; but, at the end of the day, everyone is deserving of respect, dignity, and happiness in their identities. Overall, this year’s PCN is an event that aims to teach about the everyday plights of, not only Pilipino-Americans, but people of all marginalized communities, in hopes of creating a mutual understanding and respect among all individuals on campus.

How

With your help, we know that we will be able to produce this show to its highest potential!
