From inception, FiliFest’s mission has always been to bring together youths from across the UK, bound together by their love for the Philippines and to promote Filipino culture.
We’ve done this through events such as our yearly student-organised culture festival, as well as other digital projects which utilises our platforms.
We believe collaboration is key to achieving this and we want to extend our support and encourage more collective efforts in order to achieve our mission.
Increase awareness of the Philippines.
Target mainly early Gen Z and late Millennials.
Promote local and international Filipino businesses.
Encourage collaboration amongst youths with a shared love for the Philippines.
Upskill youths with skills applicable to any work scenario.
Create networks to build a strong community.
At FiliFest, we hold ourselves to the highest standards to build trust. In order to do so we must be respectful, transparent and fair in all relationships.
The key to our work ethic is that all members take ownership of FiliFest. We take pride in the work we do and the work of our fellow members. Moreover, we push for all members to embody leadership qualities as we see this as key to FiliFest's sustainability.
Growth is important for us, and for this it is essential to keep an open mind in order to constantly learn and improve. In order to grow, we acknowledge perseverance is necessary. We value growth of all kinds – whether personal or professional, or within or outside of FiliFest.
We are not scared of growth and strive to push our boundaries further.
What makes FiliFest great is how we constantly adapt to improve ourselves and move forward together.
This is what binds us together. We made FiliFest happen because of our shared love for the Philippines.
