For thousands of years, we’ve explored our common humanity through art and creativity. Now digital culture has changed our lives, how we work, rest and play: can art help us explore our common humanity in a digital culture too? Can technology help us to make new forms of art, to share ideas in new ways, to enable more people to make and be moved by art?

How can the UK and Indonesia work together to imagine a creative digital future?

Our digital culture programme brings together artists, makers and innovators from the UK and Indonesia to share some of the most exciting digital ideas from our two creative countries, to play together and to imagine new collaborative projects.



British Council wants to build strong relationships and networks between the UK and Indonesia in the creative industries, including in one of our priority sectors: digital culture. From 29 February to 8 March 2016, seven of the UK’s leading creative are visiting Indonesia to explore the fast-evolving digital sector.

Through networking activities, speed-dating, mini-residencies, a prototyping lab and three public events, we aim to encourage discussions, share experiences and stimulate brand new collaborations between the UK and Indonesia around the use of digital technologies in art.
