Welcome to The Connection Art Project
In 2013, the founders of The Connection Art Project, photojournalist Maggie Rife Ponce, cultural artist Agustina Diez Sierra, and dance documentarian Jaycee Gossett traveled to the Philippines where they immersed ourselves in the Filipino community through then lenses of photography, art & dance.
After many interviews, shared meals, and conversations they connected with the Filipino culture on a level that went beyond any guide book. This film documents the journey and supports their misson of promoting cultural awareness. Much gratitude to all our supporters and backers that donated via Kickstarter, because of you we were able to complete our project.
Experience for yourself, just how connected we all are despite geographical chasms. Our energy orbits this Earth, connecting us even when we feel alone.
We believe that despite distance, humans are ever connected by the energy that is neither lost nor created, but rather recycled throughout lives. This means we are like interwoven particles that feel and react to each other across our divides.
Thank you for connecting. Maggie, Agustina & Jaycee
