Six Creative Cities: Indonesia

Project Type: Cohesive & Creative Cities

During Autumn 2014, together with urban designer Riccardo Bobisse (AR-Urbanism), Lia Ghilardi started a two-year British Council-led research programme to map the creative and cultural assets of six diverse Indonesian cities: Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Bandung, Solo, Surabaya and Makassar. In each city we worked with six grassroots cultural organisations to deliver capacity-building workshops and a distance one-to-one programme of mentoring. The aim of the programme was to develop local creative resources mapping skills, raise awareness of the unique creative and cultural potential of these places, and deliver action plans. The final report with the findings from the mapping, a foreword by Lia Ghilardi, and recommendations for future national policies is available from the British Council UK.
