INDIEPENDENT FILIPINO ARTIST AGENDA 2016
Specifics for the Independent Filipino Artist:
EMPOWERING THE INDEPENDENT FILIPINO ARTIST
1. Provide grants and sponsorships for projects that uphold and promote nationalism, including music productions, videos and film. This include the production of materials that can be used for schools in promoting and discovering the lives and struggles of Filipino heroes in their quest for genuine independence, sovereignty and social justice. These projects will be actively supported and participated by the independent Filipino artists, therefore they should rediscover Philippine History in order for them to create a nationalist, scientific and mass oriented musical compositions.
2. Develop a baranggay or community level arts and music program. Encourage community cultural organizations, help them develop talents in their community, and provide them with venues for them to showcase their arts.
This will create a visible avenue for artists to go and hone their talents and not go elsewhere for which it is not the community who will benefit from their arts. Create venues for trainings, workshops and sharing of compositions. Communities can also develop their own micro media such as setting up their own community radio stations similar to campus radios and video channels utilizing modern technology such as the internet.
Discover talents in your community and be proud of them. Utilize their talents by showcasing their arts in various activities on the community from ordinary events to concerts in town fiestas. Artists can also visit other communities and tour the region or the nation in promoting their arts.
The community can also help the artists in recording their songs and producing their albums. The baranggay level music and arts program can stand on its own by utilizing sponsorships from the businesses in their area.
3.On the national level, the state shall provide multi-functional community centers for culture and the arts that will support the baranggay level projects. These centers should be able to facilitate exchanges in several baranggay and regional musical showcase. Develop and establish music summits as well as give recognition to those who excel in this endeavor. Create venues in the media to showcase on a national and international level, the arts and music of communities.
4. Develop marketing for music of the independent Filipino artist. Revise oppressive rules of OMB in replicating CDs that prevents the independent artist from producing their own albums and market them. Provide means for the artists to fairly market their music as content in the new digital technology.
Areas of Concern:
1. Abolish payola system in commercial radios and insist on commercial radios to play at least 10 Filipino music per hour. Encourage these commercial media to play new materials and not just old rehashed Filipino music. This will encourage the new generation to create their own music and help develop the community of Independent Filipino Artists.
2.Utilize the People's TV and its radio counterpart for the promotion of Filipino music old and new, not in the promotional pattern of commercialism but one that promotes Filipino culture.
3.Create an Executive order that will address the collection of equity fees from foreign performances in the country and have the collection be utilized in the projects that affects the whole music community.
