Artists Resource Network Association Inc. - ARNAI

Artists Resource Network Association Inc. (formerly ACTION or Activating Communities Towards Inter cultural Orchestration Network) was founded by Theater Artist Frank G. Rivera in 1978 during his stint with the celebrated MSU-Sining Kambayoka in Mindanao. Its acronym and accompanying meaning mirror the organization's vision of a True Filipino National Theater by interacting communities of diversified cultures.

Actually trailblazing the inclusion of folk, ethnic and regional theaters into the mainstream and national consciousness, Artists Resource Network unheraldedly pioneered the unification of various regional theater groups into a major national force, as in now done jointly by the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP)and National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA)

Through the years the group has silently and slowly generated participation from the regional theater groups and individuals in the country by involving and enjoining then to move into action promoting distinctly Filipino cultural arts that is the only guide for national upliftment and advancement as people

Guided with a two-fold mission of mounting highly artistic productions that would counter the consciousness of the people, Artists Resource Network has produced remarkable plays like Oyayi, Soledad, Ama at Iba Pa and Mga Tagpi-Tagping Tupa ng Diyos,  Mga Awit ng Buhay, Ambon Ulan Baha, Tao Isang Tagulaylay and Hope for the Flowers

To date the group has been sponsored by several organizations, institutions, local and national government units and has performed regularly for different schools and universities in Metro Manila and in mobile proctions in places like Laguna, Batangas, Cavite, Bulacan, Davao and Puerto Princesa Palawan.

ARNAI is a partner of the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA) in realizing the cultural component in the Medium Term Philippine Development Plan 2004-2010

Currently based in Taguig City, ARNAI conducts seminar-workshops on Integrated Arts of Theater, Music , Dance, Visual Arts, Creative Writing, and Value-Oriented Issues such as Environmental Preservation for school and communities. It was the implementor of the NCCA-KALAHI Joint Project, " Cultural Services for the Poor 2005" for 12 priority provinces of Luzon.
