The Cultural Entrepreneurship Hub Solo by Goethe-Institut, Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship and ISI Surakarta enables young artists and cultural communities to be more entrepreneurial – helping them to achieve not only sustainable creative and financial success for themselves but also contribute to the social inclusion, economic empowerment, and cultural revitalization of their communities.
Once established the Hub will offer start-up training and will function as an incubation center; a space enabling entrepreneurial artists and cultural communities to create socially inclusive and economically empowered society. During the kick-off, a public discussion on the concept and benefits of cultural entrepreneurship is followed by a 3-day Training-for-Trainers Entrepreneurship Bootcamp using the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship Innovation Process method and modules.
The Cultural Entrepreneurship Hub Solo specifically focuses on working with young artists in the performing and classical arts. Not only is Indonesian dance, music, and theatre strongly rooted in its history, tradition, and communal life. Because of Indonesia’s cultural diversity, it also offers a unique variety of artistic expressions. And – unlike in the sectors of visual arts and design – entrepreneurial thinking and skills are not yet playing a significant role in performing artists’ education and professional perspectives, despite the great potential.
