Code of Ethics KodigoniMaSKay
MalayangSining- Kayumanggi is a voluntary performing arts institution where freedom to express is always a choice, however, boundaries has been set to safeguard and maintain outcomes with good precision which encompasses all that is meant by “Right Attitude, Good Effort, Better Institution”. A code of ethics while tacit, will be observed, belonged and will be continued by all the members, amateur or professional. It will be neither just a myth, nor dogma, nor a decree enforced by law. This will be the attitude towards craftsmanship, respect for all the members and dedication to improve talents and skills. The code summarizes a self- discipline which, far from robbing one’s individuality, boosts personal esteem and dignity through cooperation and common purpose.

I shall take full responsibility on each position and task given to me, which means meeting the deadlines and not leaving any assignments, events, projects and productions without proper endorsements or until I have completed them. 3. I am a disciple of the arts, I will remember that my goal is to promote and develop talents and skills for communal growth and not only for own personal intention. 4. I shall never lose my enthusiasm for the arts and organization because of disappointment and failure nor blame other members.
