Mahalagang isulong ang malayang paglikha ng sining. Sa pamamagitan lamang ng malayang paglikha makikita ang kabuuan nito; walang pagbabawal, walang pagsisikil, hinahayaan ang manlilikha na paliparin ang kanyang haraya tungo sa malayang paglikha. Higit na makakamit ang ganitong mithiin at tunguhin ng sining kapag nasama-sama sa isang makabuluhang proyekto ng mga kultural na pagtatanghal at panawagang palayain ang alagad ng sining na pinapanatiling nakapiit sa iba’t ibang bilangguan. Dahil sa mga layuning ito, nabuo ang proyektong Lumikha, Lumaya: Filipino Arts Festival for Freedom.
Sa layuning magpalaganap ng mga likhang-sining at pagtatanghal na halaw sa buhay ng mga mamamayang Pilipino, at upang makatugon sa panawagan at kampanya para sa mga Lumad, itatanghal ng Sining na Naglilingkod sa Bayan isang pangkulturang grupo para sa mga magsasaka, kasama ng Manila Playback, ang SAVE OUR SCHOOLS: isang playback theater performance. Gaganapin ito sa Setyembre 23, 2015 6:30 pm, sa Salud Taguibanwa, 4th Floor, Faculty Center, Kolehiyo ng Arte at Literatura, Unibersidad ng Pilipinas, Diliman.
