Filipino Cultural Appreciation Month

Posted on:

Throughout the month of June, the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust will be hosting a series of events to celebrate Filipino Cultural Appreciation Month.

Filipino Cultural Appreciation Month actively aims to foster consciousness, respect, and love for the nation’s culture and history among Filipinos. It also provides a significant opportunity for Filipino colleagues across RCHT to share their stories, culture and experiences.

The month-long celebration begins on June 4 at the Post Graduate centre (10:15 to 11:15), followed by the launching of the Filipiniana section in Cornwall Health Library in the Knowledge Spa. We will be displaying exhibits as well, of different fabrics and products from different provinces of the Philippines

Later activities during the month will include an exhibition of photographs taken by our Filipino and other international nursing colleagues as part of the ‘Through My Lens’ project (June 13 to 14), a Filipino Food Fest, to showcase a different Filipino dish once a week throughout the month of June, and a Commemorative Lighting Ceremony, to be confirmed. There will also be a weekly feature as part of the RCHT podcast and radio show, in which some of our Filipino colleagues will talk about their experiences as an international nurse and the importance of celebrating unity and diversity across RCHT.

More details of each event will be shared ahead of time to the RCHT staff Facebook page and across RCHT’s official social media and internal communication channels.

Please feel free to investigate the Filipiniana section in the Library!
