The Hafa Adai Festival is an annual event hosted by the House of Chamorros. It celebrates and preserves our traditional culture, dance, music, crafts, and cuisine. The festival features live performances, interactive activities for families and children, local vendors selling handmade goods, delicious food from multiple chefs and restaurants, and more!
“Still We Rose” is a photography & audio experience presented by photographer Jonathan Benavente.
This in-person event took place on Fri, Sep 22, 2023 at 2145 B Pan American Rd W, San Diego, CA 92101.
“Still We Rose” delves into the empowering journey of CHamoru creatives, navigating an industry that lacks true precedent. Guam and the CHamoru people often find themselves underrepresented in media and entertainment, making it even more crucial to highlight their presence.This project glances into the unique experiences of CHamoru creatives who faced the challenge of lacking industry role models who shared their ethnic background. Its mission is to capture the essence of working CHamoru creatives through photography, shedding light on their inspiring stories. By showcasing these individuals, the project aims to provide examples and inspiration to the next generation of CHamorus, illustrating that they too can pave their own paths in the creative industries.
