Transcript of PCN

What is PCN? Origin of PCN Impact PCN Content Pilipino Culture Night is a student-run theatrical production with traditional Philippine folk dances and music integrated into a skit, focusing on the Philippine and Pilipino American cultures. "Every year, across the United States, cultural presentations are organized and produced by Pilipino American undergraduate organizations. Popularly referred to as "PCN" or "PACN" (Pilipino [American] Culture Night) has evolved since it's first production in the 1970's. Originally PCN began as a way for "expressing culture" in a time of ethnic pride and celebration of one's "roots". Many argue that PCN has evolved into an artistic vehicle to explore the issues of Pilipino American cultural identity, to facilitate the creation of a communal "collective memory", and to serve as an alternative expression of popular cultural expression (Alves, 1997). For more than three decades PCNs have served as a venue for empowerment for the Pilipino American community so much so that it has become a cultural tradition in many community and educational institutions throughout the West Coast and increasingly in the mid-West and East Coast."
