This multicultural adventure is both bold and brave, the first of its kind to be held here in Austria. It is an invaluable gift to our children struggling to develop and define a sense of  self.  Its Grand Finale, scheduled on July 19, promises to be a spectacular and awesome event from start to finish! To give more meaning to this project, we are promoting friendship and cooperation, a cultural partnership! In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now." (Philippians 1:4-5).

Deriving inspiration from the New Testament, PINAS FIRST is now moving on from having partners instead of mere supporters-kibitzers. This is not a mere change in terminology. The Greek word for partnership in the Greek is "Koinonia". It means "fellowship with, and deep participation in anything."

Furthermore in 1 Thessalonians 5:11, says: "Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing".Being a part and partner of PINAS FIRST is about sharing its vision and mission. And the nice thing is one will not be short-changed in doing so. There is a lot of benefits, tangible and intangible, that one can get out it. In effect fulfulling the partnership and encouraging one another and build each other up for a better understanding.

By being a partner you will help promote friendship and cooperation in the Filipino migrant community. Your support will also develop awareness, appreciation and pride in Filipino history, culture and heritage and respect for other cultures, that will bring into the reality of the Austrian-Filipino culture.

Your support will be instrumental in defraying the substantial costs of hosting a delegation of well known Thespians and in securing the necessary training of our migrant Filipinos in in arts and culture, as well as in covering other related expenses.

The public has the opportunity to show their support of the Austrian-Filipino culture by becoming a partner. Partnership make also great gifts for culture enthusiasts.

The time to become a partner of PINAS FIRST Cultural group is now. Have a stake at the upcoming Creative Integrated Arts Workshop (CIAW): An exploration of different creative and artistic expression.

The CIAW is being lauched by PINAS FIRST to showcase and nurture existing and emerging creative talents while serving as a springboard and catalyst for the promotion of integrated Austrian-Filipino culture.

The CIAW is not only benefiting from strong internal momentum, but it is also on the leading edge the tidal wave of growth and prominence of the Filipino Community in Austria. We will continue seeking long-term partnerships as it continues its development. Together as partners.
