      Short Term Programme
      Indonesian Arts and Culture Scholarship
      29 July – 29 October 2009

      A. BACKGROUND

      The 2009 Indonesian Arts and Culture Scholarship is the seventh year of the Program that was initially offered and awarded to member countries of the South West Pacific Dialogue (SwPD); Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Timor-Leste, and the host Indonesia.

      Bearing in mind the success of the program, the offer was expanded over the years to include member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), ASEAN+3 (China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea), and the Pacific Islands Forum (PIF), as well as India and South Africa. Last year, Indonesia welcomed new awardees from Azerbaijan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States. This year will see new awardees from Austria.

      Due to the limited space and the amount of interest in the program, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia in cooperation with Indonesian embassies and consulates overseas, hold a series of selection process. Taken into considerations are, among others, the future awardees’ background, gender and regional representation.

      In order to deepen the awardees’ understanding of Indonesian arts and culture, and to enhance their skills for the final performance (Indonesia Channel), awardees will be divided and assigned by the organizing committee to different arts centers for the duration of approximately two and a half month. The arts centers are located in Bandung, West Java; Denpasar, Bali; Solo, Central Java; and Yogyakarta, Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta.

      Awardees will live within or around the arts centers, allowing for the chance to experience the local heritage and to interact with the local community. Synergy between theory and practices shared inside and outside the art centers would undoubtedly become the driving force for shaping international cultures and norms, and will eventually strengthen regional as well as global understanding and cooperation at a people-to-people level.
      B. OBJECTIVE

      The program aims at demonstrating Indonesia’s commitment as an initiator of the establishment of Southwest Pacific Dialogue (SwPD) and as the originator member of ASEAN in advancing the social culture cooperation in the region. The program also has as objective to encourage better understanding amongst awardees of participating countries through Indonesia’s immensely diverse art and cultural heritage. Finally, to cultivate a cultural of cooperation, emerging from direct contact and sharing of cultures amongst people involved in the program, leading to thriving diplomatic relations in the region and worldwide.

      C. AWARDEES

      D. TIME

      The non-degree arts and culture scholarship is offered for a period of three months.
