WELCOME TO THE PARC FOUNDATION







ABOUT

We are The PARC Foundation, a registered non-profit organization, whose vision is to help make performing arts become a part of every Filipino youth's life.



OUR VISION-MISSION


We hope to put up a Performing Arts and Recreation Center (hence, PARC) as a home to independent and emerging Filipino artists, where they can develop their skills and bring forth their artistry to the youth.


OUR ADVOCACY


We believe that there are plenty of Filipinos who have captivated the world with their artistic talents. However, there are more Filipino artists who, despite possessing great abilities, forgo their careers due to financial matters. One major hurdle, especially for performing artists, is the lack of affordable venues, which makes it tough for them to put up a show. It is because of this that we are motivated to give financially challenged performing artists a proper venue to hold their classes, rehearsals, and shows, without them having to worry about rental fees, and other costs that are too expensive.


THE CHALLENGE


The PARC today is a repurposed office building which still needs renovations to reach our end goal. We are looking for individuals and corporations who share the same appreciation for arts and culture, and would want to help us in our advocacy.


ARTIST PARTNERS

Our dream is to build a Performing Arts and Recreation Center (PARC Manila) that could foster independent and emerging artistic groups in the country

TESTIMONIALS



The PARC Foundation was a blessing to me. When I first encountered PARC and answered the survey linked to me by my friend, I was immediately captivated by its vision. As a performer and musician myself, it has always been evident to me that there is a great lack of appreciation and support for the local performing arts culture here in the Philippines, and I joined the organization in the hopes of helping solve this problem, and for my own improvement and fulfillment. So far, PARC has not failed me, albeit being a fresh organization. Inspiration and motivation flows through each and every volunteer of The PARC Foundation, evident in all events and activities that have happened so far. I live to see the local performing arts culture bloom here in the Philippines. I live for performing arts. The PARC Foundation does, too. - Erin Lee, PARC volunteer



PARC has a way of bringing artists together. As a musician and volunteer, I remember being in the meetings to plan for events and other strategies to achieve the organization's objectives. Now that the fruits of the planning are beginning to materialize, I can't help but be impressed on how some of the former drafts have been modified to utilize new opportunities that worked out fine for the whole group. From dance lessons to theatre and spoken word, I have grown to appreciate the other forms of performing arts so much more because PARC has made it easier to access than before (and no I still don't dance but hey, they are quite impressive). I believe that in the future, more people will be reached by PARC and more people will grow to appreciate the beauty of the arts in the process. It's a great passion project :) "-Chesie Limlingan, PARC Volunteer
