Kelola Foundation (Yayasan Kelola)

As a national non-profit organization established in 1999 to enhance and promote the vitality of Indonesian arts, Kelola works directly with Indonesian arts practitioners, across nationwide communities, in response to the needs by providing access to learning opportunities, funding, and information. Kelola also promotes cultural exchange by facilitating artists and art practitioners to engage in dialogue, gain and share skills and knowledge, as well as to build networks within Indonesia and with the international cultural communities.

Kelola’s programs range from workshops on management of cultural organizations and festivals to lighting, stage design, business partnership as well as offering learning opportunities through National Internships and International Residencies. The Art Grants offer monetary assistance to individual artists and ensembles. Through its website, Kelola opens access to information for and about the arts communities.
