The creative industry workers who live from one gig to another, one show to the next ( if they are casted ), one production, one concert, one screenplay, one film to the next – along with the production crew et. al. have been terribly hit due to the cancellation of many events that started during the Taal Volcano eruption way ahead of the Corona Virus Outbreak.
The current government and corporations’ support to their employees are laudable. However, most of the workers in this industry are not under an employer-employee relationship. They do not have 13th month pays, leaves, nor monthly pay slips. Freelance artists have no employer to run to.
In behalf of freelance workers in the creative industry, the Artists Welfare Project Inc. is asking your generous spirit to give assistance to the freelance artists in the audio visual, entertainment and performing arts.
The artists and creative workers have always lifted spirits and have given joy and inspiration to the Filipino people, if not pride for the country time and again. The coming months will be trying and uncertain. We need support for the coming long haul until the virus has been contained and economy can start recovering again – and in that time, kami po ay handang tumulong sa pagbangon na iyan.
Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity. Any assistance will go a long way to weather this global emergency. You can reach us at email@example.com or at 0926-6165206 Executive Director Jenny Bonto.
