Why is the idea of the starving artist still so common in society today? Most people believe that choosing a career in the fields of art will not guarantee stability in the future. They’re afraid to pursue a profession in painting, animation, graphic design, make-up, you name it. The arts however are what makes us humans, human. What people don’t realize is that artists don’t necessarily have to be “starving” for them to continue doing what they love. This is where The Studio comes in.
The Ateneo Management Association (AMA) presents its passion project: The Studio. On its second year, The Studio has expanded into a one-day workshop conference that will feature experienced artists such as Janina Dizon, Jo Claravall, Abby Orbeta for spoken word, Nate Punzalan for content creation, Princess & Princess Tan for fashion design, and Mike Perfecto for photography.
An organization from the Ateneo de Manila University, AMA aims to bring out the best out of its home for the most liberal and creative minds. With this event, AMA partners its special field of Entrepreneurship with that of the Fine Arts in hopes of eradicating the idea that the arts and people who are involved with it are not secondary to the executives in a business. More than reframing the notion of the starving artist, The Studio is also concerned with the misconception that there is no space for creativity in business.
