Big thank you to all of our SOMA Pamilya who pitched in & helped us with this year’s Parol Lantern Festival, our last event of 2017!

It’s been an AMAZING year from SOMA Pilipinas: Filipino Cultural Heritage District being named one of the first 14 state-designated Cultural Districts to our Director Extraordinaire, Alleluia ‘Manai’ receiving the first ever San Francisco Artistic Legacy Grant!

We want to dedicate this eblast to our support system – our entire Kularts Community: commissioned artists, presented performers, community partners, collaborators, funders, staff, volunteers, audiences, and all of our supporters! SALAAMAT PO!
