About Part 1: Artist Talk:


Francis Arevalo will take his audience along his artistic journey, as a rapper, producer, and mental health advocate with bipolar disorder Type 1. He’ll share how his work in spoken word, theatre, and music have been influenced by being raised in hip-hop culture as a Filipino male. And how his work as a wedding planner and cell-phone salesman have also shaped the artist he is now. 


. . .

 

About Part 2: Workshop:


In his workshop, Francis will guide  participants through their own story and potential project, towards a plan to make their idea a reality. Participants will receive a creative project planning resource to take home. To register for Part 2: Workshop click here.

About Francis Arevalo:


Francis Arevalo is a Filipino rapper, producer, and mental health advocate, born and raised on the unceded Coast Salish lands of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Watuth peoples, in Vancouver, BC. His journey battling bi-polar disorder through music was the subject of a 2017 Vancouver Asian Film Fest award-winning documentary "The Lion". In September 2018, DOMINIONATED describes his music coming from "the feeling that he’s found and embraced a truth deep within himself, that he sees the world not through rose-coloured glasses, but in shades of optimism, hope, and beauty". He is working on his debut album to release in 2020.
