Post by Blue on Tue Sep 16, 2008 5:13 pm

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Ramatullah Wa Barakatuh,

I got this through email, if you happen to be around Yuchengco museum on the said date please attend :)

====================================================

UNDERSTANDING THE CULTURE OF SULU

Tausug leader, 1913
Museum Lobby
September 20, Saturday, 2 - 5 p.m.

The Sulu archipelago is proud of its history of power and colorful culture. Sulu was an international trade hub during the 18th and 19th centuries, bridging European colonizers and Southeast Asia to the Philippines and China. At its peak, the Sulu Sultanate controlled vast territories, including parts of Indonesia, Borneo, and Palawan. Foreign powers not only traded or waged wars with Sulu, but treated them with utmost respect through the many treaties Sulu signed with the Spanish, British, French, and other sovereigns.

To complement the closing of the exhibit Beyond the Currents: The Culture and Power of Sulu, the museum will host an afternoon of lectures on a kingdom described as embodying "the highest stage of civilization to which the Malays ever attained." Topics and speakers include:

* Sustaining Sulu People's Identity of Power, History and Culture through their Visual Arts
Abraham Sakili, UP art studies professor and guest curator
* Dance & Power CrossCurrents
Ligaya Fernando-Amilbangsa , dance scholar and teacher
* Sulu: Their Historical Implications on the Moro Quest for Self-Determination
Mehol Sadain, Former dean of UP Institute of Islamic Studies
* Sulu Power: Contexts and Dynamics
Julkipli Wadi, UP Institute of Islamic Studies professor

Lecture fee is P100. Reservations are highly recommended. For reservations and details, call Elma Abrina at 889-1234 or e-mail info@yuchengcomuseum.org.

Masha Allah flower
I guess you need to be there now to show support to a family member.

I want to attend as well, there are some interesting topics I'd like to know more about, but unfortunately I'm committed to attend other events on the same date and around the same time.

please take notes and share them with us if you attend sis, I'd appreciate a quick summery Rolling Eyes
