Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts and Culture (KPC) is a multi-purpose non-profit arts and cultural center. KPC offers the community a 3500 sq. foot facility in Kensington Market, housing a performance/rehearsal/event space, community gallery, resource room, a fully equipped music recording studio, as well as video production and editing equipment all available for rental.

In the last three years, Kapisanan Philippine Centre transitioned from a traditional Filipino community centre into a youth-centered facility with a focus on arts and culture. Our mandate in our first acquired facility in downtown Toronto (Kensington Market), is to provide a space for young Filipino people to explore their identity and roots, and be able share it with their peers, elders, and the broader community, while striving to encourage leadership and social engagement through the lens of arts and culture.

We do this by offering artistic, cultural, and mentorship programs, educational arts-based activities, and cultural events. We seek to emphasize original work and experimentation through the integration of various disciplines such as: performance, visual and literary arts, film and video, and music. Considering Filipinos make up the 4th largest visible minority group in the GTA, making up 3% of Toronto’s population, there has never been a centre that offers programming specifically for Filipino youth—until now.

At the “K” we strive to provide young Filipino people from all over the GTA with an open and supportive environment where they can come together to learn about themselves, build alliances with each other, build partnerships with other cultural and arts-based initiatives in the city, cultivate leadership skills, and community interaction and participation.
