Reclaiming Derogatory Words through Art

Pinay Collection's Maarte, Maldita, Maganda Calligraphy workshop is a featured Filipino art experience designed to foster empowerment and collective storytelling. Led by our founder and professional Calligrapher, Jovie Galit, this workshop creates a supportive and safer environment where participants delve into the art of brush calligraphy while addressing the impact of painful and derogatory words within Filipino culture. Since 2018, we've successfully facilitated 15 workshops both in-person and virtually, reaching participants across Canada, the United States, the Netherlands, and, most recently, in the Philippines.
