Representing the insight into the experiences of Filipinx nurses and migrants
The Sulyap project includes various forms of artistic expression, such as a short film, an installation, an exhibition, and a panel discussion. It aims to bring to a wider audience not only the experiences and stories of Filipinx nurses, but also other Filipinx who emigrated to Austria under the Philippine-Austrian Agreement. Through these diverse media, the experiences and stories of these people are presented in an engaging and accessible way. It also emphasizes their pioneering role in the emergence of the Philippine diaspora in Europe.
Through personal interviews and conversations, this project sheds light on the influence of Philippine indigenous matriarchy and the important role of the Filipinas in their communities. In addition, Sulyap aims to create a space for Philippine youth to engage with their culture and encourage critical thinking about the challenges facing their community, including post-colonial thinking and racist prejudices.
Presented in partnership with JOONIV3RSE, a collaborative platform created by Turkish-Viennese creative director and filmmaker EYEOFBRC and curated by Filipina-Viennese artist Chelsea Amada, this visually captivating exhibition, including an artistic short film, is brought to you by the Vienna art festival WIENWOCHE.
Come and join us in honoring the crucial role of Filipinx nurses in Western healthcare systems, while also celebrating the remarkable contributions of the Filipinx community to Vienna's local art scene! We will not only celebrate, but also raise awareness and prompt critical thinking within Austrian society. We will explore the political aspects behind the presence of Filipinx nurses and migrants and gain a glimpse into the latest developments in the healthcare agreement.
