FESTPAC Literary Arts Team
Guam is home to the12th Festival of the Pacific Arts scheduled for May 22, 2016 to June 4, 2016. As the Co-Chair of the Literary Arts Publications Sub-Committee, I had the rich opportunity to experience and work with amazing and talented writers in the Pacific in the various sessions we hosted at the newly-renovated Hagatna Public Library and Latte of Freedom at Adelup. We were surrounded by the cultural aura of arts, language, heritage, spirit, pride, and unity of the Pacific, which can’t be matched. The next FESTPAC in Guam may be in another 40 years, so I’m glad I had the opportunity to serve as one of Guam’s FESTPAC delegates. Hawaii is slated to be the next host, followed by Fiji. I hope to be able to attend each of the upcoming festivals, because I’m sure they will be just as memorable! BIBA FESTPAC! Here are just a few snapshots taken during the FESTPAC activities. Enjoy!
