Artist Playground is an arts & performance company that exists to facilitate discoveries through the very basic and primal system of learning, "Playing". It is a laboratory without the controlled scientific atmosphere that marks glitches as failures. It is a training ground without structured limitations and boundaries set by popular standards. It is a space where emerging, mid-career and seasoned artists can breathe life to their creative ideas. It is a movement that celebrates the power of creation. Most of all, it aims to be an institution that guards the soul of the Filipino Communities through the use of various creative disciplines in proliferating essential truths.
