UniPro Presents "Speak and Be Heard: Evolution" 3/8/12, NYC
Thursday, March 8, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM (EST)
The Gershwin Hotel and Pilipino American Unity For Progress (UniPro) present Speak and Be Heard: Evolution, a performing art event celebrating Fil-Am innovation in the arts and film industry on Thursday March 8th.
Speak and Be Heard! Evolution will be a performance showcase that highlights the progressive trajectory seen in local art groups, primarily within the Filipino and Filipino American community. The event celebrates the outgoing spirit that emboldens Filipinos to pursue their careers in the arts, theater and film industries. At last year's UniPro Summit, film star Dante Basco encouraged the community to cultivate the public demand of Filipinos in the arts. In response to his call-to-action, UniPro has done its best to ensure that the local New York/New Jersey residents have access to emergent artists - hoping, in part, to develop the foundation of a Filipino Renaissance in the industry.
Evolution is another installment of UniPro's Speak and Be Heard! Initiative that provides artists with a platform to better interact with their audience in an intimate and approachable setting. Community and artist engagement is highly encouraged throughout the evening.
