Life Stories of Nurses
May 26 - July 27
This exhibit features the life stories and brief history of Philippine nurses, here and abroad. It emerges out of a two-day writing workshop, facilitated by the founders of Gantala Press, Faye Cura and Rae Rival, held on March 10-11, 2019. Local nurses were encouraged to tell their stories, to contribute their memories and memorabilia, and to share their personal insights into the profession and vocation of nursing. The workshop resulted in the publication of a chapbook of these stories, featured in the exhibit.
