Filipino Artists Define Art in their Own Way

Here is an interesting video shared by a friend online showing several personalities defining the word Art which is probably the most ambiguous word ever created in human history.  But here are these proud and brave people of the Philippine theater arts standing in front of a camera giving Art their own interpretation.  Watch this very simple but very inspiring video after the jump.

This video campaign aims to take a closer look on how the arts can be applicable to our lives. Expressed by those who live, breathe and LOVE it - the Filipino Artists.

In a society that sees art as frivolous, and being ma-drama and maarte, we challenge to change the paradigm and change the meaning of art.

That video is so lovely.   In a 3rd world country like the Philippines, all of us can't really make money with Arts alone.  But still many people believe that we can't live without it.  Being an artist myself I can say it is a tough life we are trying to live everyday but with just a pinch of melody, a stroke of a brush or a sway of your dancing feet, we can still survive the harsh realities of life.

What about you?  Ma-ART-te ka ba?
