Surviving Critical Conditions: Putting Up a Fight amidst Pandemonium over a Pandemic in the Philippines

Good morning from the panel “Surviving Critical Conditions: Putting Up a Fight amidst Pandemonium over a Pandemic in the Philippines” at the Inter-Asia Cultural Studies Society Virtual Conference 2021, Singapore. Pati sa research ay collaborative at palaban ang approach. Salamat sa work ninyo! Excited to bring this home to the DSCTA.

IFTR Galway 2021

Last conference for the year. Siguro. Ahahaha. I will be sharing our 2018 APAF-Japan Collaboration experience. Isipin niyo ginamit na namin ang “new normal” sa title.

Nasa General Panel ako ngayon at naghahanap ng bagong IFTR Working Group.

Before the pandemic, ito dapat yung chance na makilala sa Ireland si Domhnall Gleeson at unang chance makaapak ng Europe. As a middle child, inggitera ako sa mga kapatid ko na nakapag-UK, Germany at Switzerland. Nagrenew ako ng passport at didiretso na sa pag-aayos ng visa tapos biglang naglockdown sa Metro Manila. Kakalokaaaa! Jet setter from home pa rin!

Grateful for the opportunity to work with colleagues from the UP Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts (DSCTA). Coincidentally, we are all former fellows of the Asian Graduate Student Fellowship at the Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS). Lahat din kami fan ng bakuna. Akalain mo yun?

Salamat, Oscar Tantoco Serquiña for leading this panel! Salamat din, Charles Erize Ladia and Junesse Crisostomo sa comments, tawanan, cramming, chikahan, at health tips. Buy 1 take 3 po kami sa publication sana. Sana rin magtuluy-tuloy at lumaki pa ang ganitong writing group sa department.

The deadline for registration is on 16 July 2021. You may register here: https://bit.ly/3gDmlRv

SDEA On-Demand Presentation

Experienced another different format of an international conference! On-demand presentation na tayo o! Parang tv series lang. hahaha.

Salamat sa inspirasiyon mula sa VLF lockdown edition sa kanilang paggamit ng “KAPIT”. Nagamit ang kapit para mapakita ang gaps, possibilities, at innovations (di ko na ma-Tagalog) sa community, pedagogy, at performance making sa panahon ng viral videos at nakamamatay na virus.

Iginapang ang paper presentation na ito habang nagre-recover ako sa virus. Ahuhuhu. Ang hirap po, opo. Hindi pantay ang resources at nakakaapekto rin ang pandemic response ng mga gobyerno sa ganitong mga conference, ano po.

Maaari pong mag-purchase ng conference pass dito: https://www.sdea-tac.org/

Kasama rin sa conference ang Team ADMU nina Laura Cabochan! Go go go!

P.S. Nakaka-miss ang palipat-lipat na venue para sa conference na parang mga klase lang sa College pero dito sa conference ay unlimited kain ng kung anek-anek na tinapay, cheese, prutas, gulay at kung ano-anong dip na basta sinasawsawan ko na lang. Wala rin akong conference bag, pamaypay, notebook, ballpen at ID. Mababaw lang naman po ang gusto naming souvenir!!!! Tsaka yung pasyal eh. Akala ko makikita ko ulit ang Merlion at NUS.

In-Art-E Kumunity

Will be sharing how I shape my content using my background as a performance maker and an assistant professor in UP Diliman.

Masaya na ang moderator ay ang aking BFF na si Eric Villanueva Dela Cruz. JV Can will talk about his journey to bronze experience and the monetization side of Kumu. Emmanuel Feliciano will talk about content-making and #edutainment
