Residencies for Indonesian artists and curators

Delfina Foundation collaborates with IndoArtNow and SAM Fund for Arts & Ecology on an annual residency for an Indonesian artist or curator.

IndoArtNow is a non-profit organization that strives to promote and support Indonesian contemporary art. IndoArtNow helps raise fund for potential projects, initiate project and connect Indonesian contemporary art to a wider audience through its online platform IndoArtNow engages in activities and aims to provide support for the infrastructure of Indonesian contemporary art, by featuring exhibited artworks and publications by artists, curators, gallerists, collectors and journalists.

SAM Fund for Arts and Ecology was co-founded in 2014 by Natasha Sidharta and Rujak Centre for Urban Studies to support developments of arts that work on ecological issues.

Our collaboration supports an artist or curator each year through a competitive open call for applications.
