We offer a range of services to artists, producers and organisations with a focus on engagement with Asia. Bringing together two decades of experience in the arts and music industry, our people have worked in a range of artistic settings throughout Indonesia, Japan, Thailand and Timor-Leste, to name a few. We have long-term, developed networks and relationships between countries and artistic communities that form the basis of our work in Asia, with a particular focus on Indonesia.
We specialise in brokering conversations and creative partnerships throughout Asia, acting as a connector between artists, curators, researchers and institutions.
Our studio space located in Yogyakarta, acts an essential jumping off point for our work in Indonesia and beyond. This is available to house artists, producers, curators, researchers and organisations wishing to connect and collaborate with Indonesian artists and audiences, with the support of experienced bi-lingual producers.
Producing & Curation
We act as lead producers on contemporary projects, from concept through to realisation, management and touring. We bring collective expertise across contemporary performance, experimental music and composition, visual art, publishing and new media.
We work with independent artists and organisations to develop targeted curatorial and producing strategies that enhance and extend their body of work. This can include assistance with exhibition proposals, project development, production advice, audience and cross-cultural engagement, concept development and programming.
We possess extensive experience and expertise in artist and music management including international tour management and scheduling, contract negotiation, media liaison and financial management. We possess extensive knowledge of markets in Asia, Europe, USA and South America with a particular focus on experimental music and festivals.
