Art Endowment Fund

Commenced in: 2014

To promote the establishment of the Arts Endowment Fund and its implementation


Directorate-General for Cultures of the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Ministry of Finance, and arts communities

  • The regulation for the Culture Endowment Fund is being developed by the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Ministry of Finance.

One of the mandates of Koalisi Seni since its inception has been to encourage the establishment of the Arts Endowment Fund. This mission became even more relevant after research on the Sustainability of Art Institutions in 8 Cities in 2016 found that funding was the main challenge in organizing art activities.

In its development, the advocacy of the Bill for the Advancement of Culture became the main vehicle for realizing the Art Endowment Fund. This was achieved when the Cultural Advancement Law passed in 2017 stated – albeit slightly differently – that the government should establish a Cultural Trust Fund. Currently, the government is currently working on a derivative regulation of the Cultural Trust Fund.

To support the advocacy of the Art Endowment Fund, Koalisi Senin also encourages participation and art philanthropy from the public and private parties. One of these efforts is to form the Arts and Culture Philanthropy Cluster in 2017 with the Creative Economy Agency (Bekraf) and Indonesian Philanthropy.

Imagination and critical thinking are the keys to change. Therefore, art is a fundamental prerequisite for the realization of democracy. Support us in establishing policies that fully advocate for artists.
