Hubs in a form of creative spaces have been established in Indonesia since years ago where it becomes a movement for independent art and cultural scenes.
These spaces are usually initiated and run by individual and collective art initiatives, occupying different forms of spaces with the aim to provide physical space to produce, display or store art works whilst building community values along the way with a main aim to provide space for community purposes. But, why hubs?
- Hubs can be more than a home for creatives, they can also be a voice for the sector.
- Hubs boost economic value, incubate products and service innovation, challenge new ways of working and thinking, etc.
- Hubs play a vital role in the growth of the creative economy, by gathering and representing growing creative communities.
- Hubs generate/promote/amplify positive social impact by being inclusive in their community and with their audiences, and by invigorating neighbourhoods.
- Hubs have been great partners in our programming so far - as delivery partners, collaborators, producers and researchers.
- Working with hubs is a ‘one to many’ approach which ensures that support to one leader translated into strengthening a whole creative community.
This Creative Hubs programme in Indonesia is being developed under a global programme:
Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies (DICE), a programme committed to addressing the rising underemployment for young people in emerging economies and the lack of inclusive economic development in emerging economies which can translate into instability, political disaffection and reduced economic growth.
