Galaw: Dance at the time of COVID

Plenary

Dancers, choreographers and many other creatives in the performing arts sector are among the heavily affected by the ongoing pandemic, as performing venues were forced to close down along with other business establishments.

This fireside chat is a casual conversation among the members of this community, to see how everyone is coping almost two years since the start of the pandemic.

The session’s title is “Galaw,” the Tagalog word for steps, motion or movement, an obvious reference to the industry which most of the participants come from or associated with.

It is co-organized and facilitated by AWPI, an artist organization closely working with this community but whose membership cuts across various creative industries, and with whom IPOPHL-BCRR has worked closely especially in 2020. [galaw]
