Angel Alviar-Langley (aka ‘Moonyeka’) is a queer mixed-Filipinx femme movement based storyteller who utilizes art creation, teaching, and organizing to realize a world that honors her communities' stories in a way that is healing, celebratory, and generative. Amongst many projects and collaboration Moonyeka continues to facilitate LIL BROWN GIRLS CLUB (a movement based mentorship program for young g*rls of color), WERKSHOP (a womxn’s prefunk to 206 Zulu’s Soulful Mondays), and will be organizing WHAT’S POPPIN’ LADIEZ?! for it’s 3rd iteration this year.
In 2019, Moonyeka joined forces with Kapatid Kollective( 4 rad Filipinx femme artists + organizers) to bring arts + culture events for Filipinx American History Month and carve spaces so that we can better imagine and collectively develop the many ways in which Filipinxs can heal ourselves, undo interconnected systemic oppressions, and thrive.
Moonyeka is a DANCE CRUSH selected by Seattle Dances, the 2017 Tina La Padula Fellowship recipient, Ubunye Project 2017 contributor, Mary Gates Leadership awardee and George Newsome Humanitarian scholar.
