Jerico Garcia, one of the organizers, said in an interview,the “add to kART project” started from a simple “ayaan” in their school organization. 

“We want to make a move on how to contribute to our community, to our frontliners, the one fighting this pandemic. So we came up with this idea to use Art as a medium to help,” he said. 

The initiative is composed of twenty-five artist from PUP-MNL Electrical Engineering Department (PUP EED), Technological Institute of the Philippines (TIP), International Institute of Human Capital (IIHC), Technological University of the Philippines (TUP), University of the Philippines (UP) and Manuel S. Enverga University Foundation (MSEUF).
