Jakarta, just an hour away from Singapore, was the first in a series of overseas expeditions to the ASEAN cities under GCA’s Urban Culture Asia brand. Through this regional platform, Singaporeans are able to explore and uncover new opportunities in the creative industries within the Asian markets. Over one weekend, we brought 36 entrepreneurs from various fields to visit and gain a perspective on creative spaces such as Indoestri, Komunitas Salihara, Ak’.sa.ra, Ruang Seduh Kemang, Ganara Art Studio, Dia.Lo.Gue, 2Madison, Edwin’s Gallery, Galeri Hadiprana and Pasaraya. Besides a trip down to Jakarta Old Town, we had the privilege to catch the first ChildAid Asia in Jakarta! The delegation was led by GCA chairman Mr Lee Suan Hiang (seated, front right).
