To all our talented artists and practitioners of Chamorro arts not currently living on Guam,
We invite you to become a member of the Guam delegation of artists for FestPac 2016 on Guam May 22 – June 4, 2016 by registering here.
The process is simple: register your interest in one of four disciplines—Literary Arts, Performing Arts, Traditional Arts, or Visual Arts—here on our Chamorro Arts Network website AND participate in one of two auditions being held this year.
Auditions will be in person or by material submission (video, audio, etc.) to discipline chairpersons. Each chairperson will let you know the requirements and work with you once you’ve registered.
Audition dates are Sunday, March 29th, 2015 at the Sons and Daughters of Guam Club in San Diego and in October 2015 in or around the Washington, D.C. area; exact location to be announced at a later date.
Delegate selection will be done by a representative of the Guam Council for the Arts and Humanities Agency (Guam CAHA), and the designated Diaspora chairperson in charge of the art discipline you choose.
The Guam FestPac Diaspora committee is an extension of the Guam FestPac Committee and has been authorized by the Guam Council for the Arts and Humanities Agency (Guam CAHA) to recruit, select (through audition with CAHA) and manage the Diaspora of 115 cultural artists prior to going to Guam in 2016.
We will continue to keep you posted; please register here to receive updates by e-mail.
You can also request to be contacted by phone. Registration does not obligate you to an audition.
