SIKAP, the Creative Content Creators' Association of the Philippines, aims to harness Filipino creativity into developing
original content for global consumption. We envision Filipino creators with the ability to sell, negotiate rights,
handle distribution and contracts, network with investors, and even enter
into co-production or co-development agreements.
This experience can be gained by participating in international festivals and markets,
which is often not accessible to many local creators.
That’s why SIKAP is establishing AYO.
