Hello Barkada is able to provide programming, activity sheets, and freelance work thanks in part to the community of Barkada Backers that contribute to our ongoing crowdfund. Please consider becoming a monthly or one-time Barkada Backer today!


Watch our free livestream series' Allowed and The Call Out simply by following Hello Barkada on Instagram! Visit our Programs & Events page for links to video playbacks on our YouTube Channel and information on more virtual and in-person events coordinated by or featuring Hello Barkada.


Hello Barkada activity sheets are free downloadable resources. Printing isn't necessary. They can be written and colored on in free PDF editing applications; Google "free PDF editor" for options.

By spotlighting artists with intersectional identities, these activities are also intended to validate, start conversations, and build community. Please share them with family, friends, teachers, librarians, before- and after-school program coordinators, and others.

If you've completed or distributed any of our activities, please post a photo on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and tag @HelloBarkada #HelloBarkada so we can reshare and see them in the wild!
