In November, Typhoon Haiyan nearly obliterated an entire region, leaving millions of Filipinos homeless and mourning for lost loved ones.
Over the last few weeks, we've seen an overwhelming response of support and generosity from the international community and from Filipinos overseas. With the focus currently on providing short-term relief, there is a danger that Haiyan survivors will be forgotten after emergency relief efforts have ended and global media attention is elsewhere.
On Saturday, December 21 at The Empty Bottle on 1035 N. Western Ave. from 1-5 PM, Chicago-based musicians and artists will come together for a fundraising concert to support long-term relief and reconstruction efforts led by Gawad Kalinga.
Featuring live performances by David Wycoco, The Heroic Black, Sama-Sama Project, Bagwis Collective and Faceless Soul
Also featuring artwork and photography by Agustina Diez Dierra and Maggie Rife Ponce of The Connection Art Project.
*Proceeds from the sale of their pieces will support recovery efforts led by Dakila*
Tickets are $15. ALL ticket sales will go directly to Gawad Kalinga's on-the-ground recovery efforts in the Philippines.
