Dupil Collective

Dupil: Archaic Tagalog term that, when translated into English, can mean “amulet”, “support”, and “cover”.


The Dupil Collective seeks to cover all their complex, intersecting identities in their multi-arts projects, while supporting accessibility and interdependence as artists with disabilities. Ultimately their diasporic work strives for the magic of their ancestors’ artful amulets-- a combination of knowledge, empowerment, and charm.

The Dupil Collective (re)sides with(in) unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory.

We work to support indigenous self-determination and follow the lead of Anishinaabeg Elders, leaders, and teachers.
