Breakin you off…

Somebody put some bubblewrap on the floor, ‘cause I’m about to drop some knowledge!

To all my So-Cali Pinoys and Pinays! This Saturday, January 31, 2009, I’ll be speaking at the Southern California Pilipino American Student Association (SCPASA) summit at the University of California Riverside (UCR). I’ll be facilitating a workshop, The Baybayin Writer’s Workshop. Description is as follows:

The Baybayin Writer's Workshop: Art. History.
The Baybayin Writer's Workshop introduces the ancient Filipino form of writing, Baybayin (also known as Alibata), and sheds light on the history and cultural significance of the life, death, and resurrection of Baybayin writing. Workshop participants will also learn few of the fundamentals of how to translate and how to write Baybayin characters through an interactive writing session. Other topics covered are traditional and modern forms of Baybayin artwork, including examples of Baybayin being used in modern calligraphy, tattooing, and street art.

Be sure to register at 10 AM, check the flyer below. AFTER EVENT! I heard Bambu of the mighty mighty Native Guns is rockin the stage along side DJ Phatrick. Expect some of that dope Fil-Am goodness you know you love!

It was such a nice project, that Baybayin Writing Workshop. Maybe you could visit a site I made written in Baybayin Unicode, and comment or anything. I have also included a Baybayin Typepad in the site, maybe you could find some use to it or introduce it to some people in your workshop. Mabuhay ang Baybayin!
