Hinabing Gunita (Woven Memories) brings together the writings and reminiscences of Filipinos who have settled in the United Kingdom during the last thirty years.

Hinabing Gunita—in poems, essays and interviews— chronicles the emergence of the Filipino community and its gradual recognition within multicultural Britain. Long regarded as an ‘invisible’ minority, Filipinos have been arriving in the UK for several generations. In their own words, individuals recount the pain of leaving home, their fears and uncertainties, the many struggles faced and ultimately their coming of age as a viable and identifiable community with so much to contribute to British society as well as to their homeland.

The book records some of the stories of an exodus that began thirty years ago and which continues to this day; the incredible journeys made by Filipinos and their no less extraordinary experiences of life here. The publication is the result of a two-year project funded by the Basic Skills Agency. Courses in Photography, Creative Writing and Desktop Publishing were offered so that participants (over a hundred of them) could be actively involved in contributing to and being part of the production of the book.

For book orders, please email cf@clara.net or edmar67@yahoo.com. The book is priced at £6. (Press Announcement)
