Resiliencies is a diasporic narration of varied experiences aiming to make interpersonal connections with artists and their culture's history. Collectively, ideas reflecting the lasting effects of colonization, oppression, and social justice movements are evident.

In the spirit of People Power, we are highlighting the pivotal role of art and culture, which was used to educate, organize, and mobilize the Filipino people against the dictatorship, despite looming threats of state-sponsored violence. Following the revolutionary tradition of the Filipino people, we continue our active resistance against oppression in all forms, especially through art and cultural work showcased in Resiliencies.
