BARYO Magazine

BARYO Magazine is driven by a passion for storytelling and a commitment to showcasing the rich tapestry of Filipino creativity, thriving in the city of Toronto. BARYO, meaning ‘community’ or ‘neighbourhood’ in Tagalog, serves as a platform where the diverse voices and perspectives within the Filipino diaspora converge, celebrating shared heritage and individual journeys. The magazine’s editorials are not merely showcases of fashion or aesthetics but are deliberate explorations of identity, memory, and belonging. Each spread is a visual ode to the resilience and creativity of one’s community, drawing inspiration from their roots while embracing the influence of their present surroundings. Core to BARYO’s mission are interviews with creatives making waves in various fields. From film directors pushing the boundaries of contemporary film to fashion designers who pioneered simulating Filipino culture and arts in their collections. We uncover the stories behind their work, delving into the inspirations, challenges, and aspirations that shape their artistic endeavours. BARYO’s mission is to uphold a cultural understanding that leads to an international understanding. Whether you’re a diaspora member seeking connection or an enthusiast of creative expression, BARYO welcomes you to join us on this journey of discovery and celebration, one page at a time.
