Yayasan Kreatif Bangsa Indonesia (Krafbina) introduced several programs on Monday, featuring creative workshops, Desa Kreatif Cerdas (Smart Creative Village) and a creative community.
The series of "Creative Art, Fashion & Lifestyle" (Crafstyle Event) workshops are scheduled to run in several locations, namely Sleman regency in Yogyakarta from Sept. 10 to 16, Bandung, West Java, from Dec. 5 to 15, Denpasar, Bali, from Dec. 25 to 31 and Jakarta from Nov. 10 to 25, 2019.
Krafbina head Luwi Saluadji Purbodiningrat told a press conference on Monday that the workshops would cover various creative topics, including fashion, beauty and film.
For the workshops, Karfbina is collaborating with various organizations, such as the Indonesian Film Actors Association (Parfi), the Northumbria School of Fashion – Bina Nusantara University, Darwis Triadi School of Photography and more, with industry professionals aiming to educate creative talent.
“Krafbina collaborates with the crème de la crème [of the industry],” said Luwi.
The workshops will provide participants with basic information related to the creative industry, such as an introduction to branding, how to create a fashion collection and more.
Luwi saw that it was important to develop creative talent from the roots and educate it to understand what creativity is all about.
Luwi also said that each area had its strengths and weaknesses, hence, Krafbina provided each city with the right workshops.
In regard to Desa Kreatif Cerdas, Luwi shared that the program was currently running in three villages in Yogyakarta. These villages were required to send 25 people and Krafbina would teach them basic creativity in fashion, photography and beauty.
Meanwhile, Parfi chairman Marcella Zalianty said when discussing the creative industry, particularly film and culture, everything was connected. Therefore, collaboration is important in developing a creative industry ecosystem. (kes)
