…was formed out of a fervent hope and belief that Filipino artists can do a lot to change the despairing socio-political conditions of our country. Pinoy artists have always displayed courage and made significant contributions to advancing the noble ideals of freedom, justice, and pursuit of truth. Time and again, the Pinoy artists have staked their lives and used their talents to recover our national pride in the seemingly endless periods of darkness and adversity.
Artist Revolution continues this tradition of Pinoy artists creating and performing for positive change. Next year, 2010, the Philippines will be at another major crossroads. The opportunity for genuine reform and genuine leadership shall present itself through the national elections in May. Artist Revolution aims to drum up the spirit of hope amidst a time of apathy and cynicism. We aim to encourage and inspire fellow artists and fellow citizens to take it upon ourselves to face the problems besetting our nation squarely and believe that change will happen if we act now.
We reach out to each and every artist, each and every individual, corporation, and organization who believes that change is not only Possible but Long Overdue to support our initial salvo:
365 DAYS TO CHANGE …TODO NA ‘TO!
A concert at the Music Museum, May 11, 2009, Monday, 8 pm, exactly one year before the May 2010 elections. The first of a series of explosions that will rock this nation till May 2010 and Beyond.
