The city of Depok in West Java is to build a "creative center" in 2020 which is aimed to help youths channel their creativity and talent.

Depok Mayor Mohammad Idris announced the plan, saying that the facility could curb juvenile delinquency.

“Depok youths can share their aspirations through the creative center,” he said on Thursday as reported by kompas.com.

The creative center will be built in front of Depok Music Park on Jl. Merdeka on a 2,000-square-meter area. 

“We have already prepared the DED [detail engineering design] for the construction plan,” Idris added. 

The funding for the facility came from a West Java administration grant. The cost of the facility is about Rp 4 billion (US$283,126) and an additional Rp 25 billion for the infrastructure. (eyc)
