UK/Indonesia 2016-18 is all about the future potential of young creatives and producers, and the creative possibilities of new digital technology.

We’re interested in talking to people or organisations who work in either of those areas, and who are interested in connecting between the UK and Indonesia.

How can you get involved?

RESIDENCIES IN INDONESIA

We are providing opportunities for UK creatives to spend time in Indonesia, learning about the Indonesian context and working on new projects in partnership with festivals, collectives, arts venues or other organisations.

We now have nine residency hosts in Indonesia as our partners, and seven partners who are offering specific residency programmes in 2017.

If you missed the deadline for the application and have a specific residency programme you would like to discuss with us, please do not hesitate to contact us.

RESIDENCIES IN THE UK – FOR ARTISTS OR CREATIVE PRODUCERS

We plan to work with UK partners to identify opportunities for Indonesian artists and producers to spend time in the UK working on new projects and learning about the UK context.

There’ll be an open call later in 2016 with more information.

FESTIVALS AND VENUES

If you are developing arts or creative industry programmes for a festival or cultural venue, with at least two years experience, and are interested in working with the UK, please do get in touch so we can explore how we might be able to help.

Opportunities will vary according to sector and relevance, but may include: 

  • Network expansion – introductions to UK creatives and organisations.
  • UK scoping visits – occasional exciting opportunities to visit the UK for key creative events.
  • Joint programming – working together to jointly commission new projects or take part in our UK/Indonesia festival.
