HAGÅTÑA (IHFG) — I Hagan Famalåo’an Guåhan Inc. has received a grant from the Guam Council on the Arts and Humanities Agency through the CARES ACT and is developing a series of presentations and workshops focusing on creative expression and art by women and gender diverse creatives.
IHFG will begin the project with a special series of readings and a writing workshop featuring the publication, “Kinalamten Gi Pasifiku: Insights from Oceania,” which was published in 2017 by Ta Tuge Mo’na, a community of writers dedicated to the creation and perpetuation of literature from Guåhan and the Pacific region.
The book is a phenomenal collection from over 35 authors and artists and is a production of the Festival of Pacific Arts held in Guam in 2016.
The three-part series will include two reading events and a writing workshop with author, editor, and educator Terry Perez.
The schedule is as follows:
• First Reading Event, Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021, 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live, featuring Terry Perez, Kisha Borja Quichocho, and Megan Taitague
• Second Reading Event, Saturday, Oct. 30, 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live, featuring Terilynn Francisco and Siobhon McManus
• Writing Workshop with author Terry Perez, Saturday, Nov. 20 at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Participants are asked to attend the first two reading events in advance of this workshop. Space is limited and registration is required.
