Dear Artist KO Directors and Officers

The Artist KO community will be holding its first strategic planning session on March 6, 2010 in Capitol Site, Cebu. The activity is aimed at laying the groundwork for the cooperative and setting its goals for this year and onwards, as well as determining the direction that our community wants to take.

What this activity means to us is a better understanding of Artist KO’s role in developing a community of musicians and artists. A community where each of one of us may participate and contribute to the best of his/her abilities and skills.

How can we develop this thrust of community-building? What is it that enables us to be the best at what we do? The answers to these questions are easy enough to guess: It takes our passion and our innate pursuit of perfection to make Artist KO work.

This pursuit of perfection is what allows us to rise above the crowd. Regular, average people would ignore details - the necessary work of getting into the nitty-gritty, of making sure that even the tiniest detail is perfect. Artists are not regular people.  We, at Artist KO, should be able to embrace details.

Yet we are often lulled by our own hubris and we often fail to see purpose in the details. Without purpose, the details become a dissonance; a distraction. The pursuit of perfection is in the details.

So, as we take this first step, we ask for your support and prayers. Artist KO is about us and the members. It’s taking all of our passion and our pursuit for that most perfect note and strokes, to allow our separate rhythms blend into a most beauteous canvas of harmony.

Moving forward.


Ian Zafra
Chairman, Artist KO
