Many creative workers, local craftsmen and art teachers are affected by COVID-19 where they lost their jobs, had their service agreements terminated, or had their income drastically decreased.

There is still a lot of stigma about the art-related profession and the general view of artistic endeavors as impractical, unrealistic, and unprofitable, making their work considered easy and the fees paid below the stand.
