Pilipino Cultural Night 34: Binibini
Presented by Cal Poly Pilipino Cultural Exchange
Friday, April 28 & Saturday, April 29 @ 7:00 PM
Pilipino Cultural Night (PCN) is a tradition that is set in the foundations of Pilipinx organizations all throughout California. This is the opportunity for students to learn about issues that our relevant in, not only the Pilipinx-American community, but in many marginalized communities, and to showcase the diverse talents of our members through choral performance, traditional and modern dance, acting, and stage production.
The show is entirely student-run, encouraging participants to develop and improve upon skills that could be applicable in the real-world, such as, time management, communication, and leadership. This show also strives to educate students on social issues, and to help them discover their passions outside of a classroom setting. Additionally, the nature of this show conveys the message that the people you see every day experience many different things that may stem from differences in culture, gender, tradition, socioeconomic status, environment, etc; but, at the end of the day, everyone is deserving of respect, dignity, and happiness in their identities. Overall, this year’s PCN is an event that aims to teach about the everyday plights of, not only Pilipino-Americans, but people of all marginalized communities, in hopes of creating a mutual understanding and respect among all individuals on campus.
