An Open Letter to the Filipino Artist

An Open Letter to the Filipino Artist

Dear Filipino Artist:

Warm greetings from NCCA!

For the past six months, we have been conducting consultations both within and outside the organization; and especially among members of the various committees and subcommittees on the possibility of forming artists teams composed of Lumad, Moro, and Christian poets, playwrights, composers, choreographers, visual artists, actors and stage directors who would be interested in widening their milieu by conducting creative workshops for victims of man made and natural catastrophes as the crises arise.

A Trainors Training will be conducted in March by seasoned artists from PETA, CCP, and KALAHI who have been doing this kind of work for years. A module will evolve from this workshop which will be tested this year.

Being part of this endeavor will help us find gifted artists among the most deprived sectors of our society, at the same time, give you the opportunity to deepen your grasp and understanding of Philippine realities, which will help you develop into a mature artist.

If you are interested to be part of one of these teams, please email your name, bio with cell no to

Thank you.

Sincerely Yours,

Malou Jacob
Deputy Executive Director
National Commission for Culture & Arts
