Gerakan Kreabilitas or Creability Movement is a project we are working on with Indonesian Creative Enterprise – Ketemu Project. The collaboration brings together diverse creatives, empowers disabled creatives to design and produce marketable products and services, and encourages creative enterprises to work and develop disabled friendly workforce mainly in Indonesia.
The project has been awarded British Council’s Developing Inclusive Economy (DICE) Programme Grant, running from March 2019 to March 2020.
We are going to do this through:
- Residential design thinking for 30 Creative Enterprises/Individuals
- Creative incubation & mentorship for 5 chosen projects, products or services
- Products and services development
In The UK
- Business Skills Workshops for disabled creatives by Culture+ Programme
- Creative incubation and mentoring developing services/products alongside the Indonesian delegates
We will be producing toolkits & resources from our experiences that we hope will help others working on similar projects.
