SAYAW is the kickoff event for the Pilipinx American Leadership X-perience (PAL-X) for student leaders, produced by the Filipino American Arts Exposition (FAAE) and hosted by CSUEB PASA and SFSU PACE.
SAYAW will start with a Fireside Chat between community advocates to discuss student leadership and activism, followed by a Panel Presentation by local folk dance company artistic directors to share how we can discover our culture and roots through music, dance and the arts. Additionally, the Summit will include Breakout Dance Workshops to engage and teach Summit attendees traditional folk dance movements. The workshops will also discuss the history, mythology and deeper meaning behind Philippine folk dances, costume, music and instruments to develop a greater understanding of our heritage and traditions.
The feature event of SAYAW is the PCN Showcase where various school organizations get to perform highlights of their Pilipino Cultural Night show. The event will provide the platform for each school to promote their PCN and for the whole PCN community to show support for each other.
