Indonesian fine and functional arts are growing markets in the 21st century global creative economy. Functional art, where new design ideas combine with the artist’s technical expertise, is an underutilized economic sector offering a huge advantage that until recently lacked supporting infrastructure.

ARTCanggu, a platform to empower artists through entrepreneurial start-ups, was held from October 28 to November 11 at the Tugu Hotel, Bali, Canggu. It merged Balinese cultural influences with contemporary art ideas and showcased unique works of art and unique craftsmanship, the first in a series of events designed to support Balinese artists during the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.

The collaboration between Yayasan TiTian Bali (YTB), Tugu Hotel, Bali and the arts collectives Sanggar Bares and Kelompok Seni Gotong Royong showcased a range of arts and crafts made by children and adults. Tugu Hotel, Bali, Canggu’s first five-star boutique hotel and Indonesia’s leading artistic and cultural resort brand, showcased the cultural riches of the past with contemporary creativity.

Showcasing a range of arts and crafts in two and three dimensions, some of the items on display at ARTCanggu included fashion pieces such as sneakers, clothing and luggage hand painted by children. The adult artists presented decorative artwork inspired by Balinese cultural icons with dynamic contemporary reinterpretations. The coir depictions of Made Wahyu Senayadi’s Barong and Balinese warrior performance costumes and painted objects by Made “Bijal” Suartama were the highlights. Bijal adopts flowing and colorful organic designs for women’s handbags and crafts, transforming each into very attractive pieces.

ARTCanggu was the first chapter of the cooperation between YTB and Tugu Hotel, Bali for the ARTCanggu series, alongside the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy for the development of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME). The opening of ARTCanggu was marked by a special YTB presentation featuring start-ups Kick-Start Artpreneur and representatives from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy. Recently prioritized by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, one of the ministry’s initiatives is to empower new entrepreneurial start-ups within the national creative economy.

“Although not all Balinese artists have access to the sale of their works in national and international markets, the artists I call second-rate, they nevertheless have extraordinary ideas and solid skills, and these are the – here we want to capitalize and create. new markets, ”said YTB Advisory Board Chairman Soemantri Widagdo. Inaugurated in 2016, the first arts foundation of its kind in Indonesia, YTB is an artist incubator creating Balinese artistic entrepreneurs for the global creative economy of the 21st century.

“Our vision, starting with ARTCanggu, is to build a naturally sustainable and self-regenerating ecosystem based on Balinese cultural values ​​and the philosophy of abundance. The concept is a creative vehicle where artists from many fields, designers, art entrepreneurs and art enthusiasts come together to support each other, ”said Soemantri.

At the opening of ARTCanggu, the founding members of YTB presented awards and signed memoranda of understanding with the first recipients of the TiTian Artpreuneur Award. This unique YTB initiative is a start-up program to create start-ups for MSMEs or other entrepreneurial platforms. These projects enable artistic ideas to turn into salable products for Indonesian and global creative economies.

“The TiTian Artpreuneur Award promotes product innovations that show innovative artistic design and the spirit of entrepreneurial collaboration. The award supports communities of artists and craftspeople with an initial angel investment or seed money, ”said Soemantri. “Funding starts at $ 200 and monthly operational support to cover material expenses for six years, a total of $ 2,700 per community. “

“In addition, each community benefits from mentoring in all aspects of building a start-up business. This includes finance, accounting, legal, logistics, manufacturing and packaging, ”said Soemantri. “Access to markets through awareness raising and brand building will also be provided. The aim is to provide each company with the know-how and skills necessary to become successful entrepreneurs. We are confident, with all of this, that the sustainability of each start-up is guaranteed. “

The recipient of the TiTian Artpreuneur Award for the children category was Sanggar Bares, founded in 2018 in Lodtunduh, Gianyar. Kelompok Seni Gotong Royong established during pandemic in 2020 in Mambal, Gianyar won the adult category. Throughout the ARTCanggu, members of the two collectives led creative exhibitions and workshops open to public participation. “As the concept of ARTCanggu spreads, the clusters evolve based on the skills and value proposition in the creative fields of fine and functional arts, based on materials. [textile, wood, paper, etc.], the performing arts, music and the culinary arts. We then develop geographic clusters that support each other as networks of resilient entrepreneurs and start-ups, ”explained Soemantri.

“Many people come to Canggu, but there are few places to be exposed to Balinese culture. Therefore, we are delighted to collaborate with Yayasan TiTian Bali,” said Lucienne Anhar, General Manager of Tugu Hotel, Bali .

“The mission of our hotel is to preserve and tell the stories through the art and culture of forgotten Indonesia to the global public. As one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world, its stories are dynamic and ever-changing. We wish to become the vessel of the Canggu community to discover and learn more about Balinese culture, history and new contemporary artistic expressions. The pandemic underscores the importance and value of the culture to enrich our lives.

The most important thing that one should keep in mind when visiting or living in the United Arab Emirates is that it is a Muslim country. Of course, Dubai is known to be more liberal and tolerant than its neighbors, but this freedom should not be expected or taken for granted. The recent crackdown on foreigners breaking the rules has been reported in the press around the world, and whether people agree or not, these are the rules.

Dubai demographics

Emiratis make up less than 20% of the total population of Dubai, which comes as a shock to many people. Most of the population comes from the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan and Bangladesh), while the rest come from other countries in the Middle East (especially Lebanon and Egypt) and Western countries (mainly the UK , but also South Africa, Australia and Canada). There are also a significant number of Filipinos working in hospitality and retail.

Most nationalities socialize within their cultural circles and you will rarely find Emiratis, especially women, spending their free time with those from other countries. In fact, your interaction with Emiratis will most likely be limited to passport control at the airport and any visits you make to government offices.

The official language of the United Arab Emirates is Arabic, but English is the most widely spoken. You will also hear Hindi, Urdu and Filipino on a regular basis.

Spend his free time

One of the most popular institutions for Western expats is Friday Brunch – an all-you-can-eat festival that starts around noon and officially ends around 4 p.m., but usually begins until the last person drops. Held every Friday in hotel restaurants across the city, brunches range from cheap and cheerful (80 Dhs at Waxy O’Connors) to the height of five-star pleasure (550 Dhs at Fairmont Dubai with unlimited Moet and cocktails).

During the winter, Dubai is a sun worshipers’ paradise. With temperatures mirroring those of an English summer, it is a beautiful place at this time of year. People usually head indoors once summer begins and temperatures approach 50C.

Laws and customs

The laws of the country are based on Islam, which means that there are quite significant differences from the laws of Western countries and the penalties can vary widely from what is expected in the West. The main topics of concern to Western expats relate to alcohol and relationships with the opposite sex.

It is illegal to drink in public, but alcohol is served free in licensed hotels and it is acceptable for expats to drink. Alcohol – heavily taxed, of course – can be purchased at a store if you have a liquor license, but this can only be obtained with the permission of your employer and landlord.

There is zero tolerance for drinking and driving, so if you get caught driving with any level of alcohol in your blood, expect jail time.

Homosexuality is illegal in the UAE, but there is apparently an active underground gay network. Just know that this is illegal and those who engage in homosexual acts are likely to be treated harshly.

Although not nearly as strict as other countries in the Middle East, public displays of affection are frowned upon. Although you can find couples holding hands, it is still an offense and it is also considered criminal to kiss in public or have sex outside of marriage. Needless to say, if you are caught having sex or performing sex acts, you can say goodbye to your freedom in Dubai. Reserve the fun in the privacy of your own home and you shouldn’t find yourself in trouble.

Over the past decade, the most popular perk alongside free lunches and office table tennis tournaments has been unlimited PTO. We either received it or we were jealous of our peers who caught it. However, it looks like unlimited PTO is being phased out because nobody knows how to use it.

A general understanding of Unlimited PTO is that you take the days off you need or want when you need them or want them. Want two weeks on your honeymoon? Dark. Need a week to recharge your batteries? Sure.

In most companies, it is understood that you will take the PTO at your discretion and with the approval of your team.

However, it seems we’re all too scared to take time off and if so, isn’t that a culture issue?

Some people worry that their colleagues and employees are taking too much time off.

First, your coworkers should mind their own business, and second, don’t be stupid.

If you think it’s okay to disappear for a week or even a month without telling anyone, it’s NOT unlimited power take-off, that’s stupid and you should lose your job for unreliability and irresponsibility .

“At your discretion” means that you plan your days off by discussing it with your team and your manager. If you’re a manager, encourage your team to take a break.

Most people would avoid burnout if they felt supported and encouraged to take a break. Keep that talent!

Others will not take advantage of the PTO because they think it will be used against them. Some equate free time with low productivity, lack of team spirit, low ambition, or even a lazy work ethic. If you’re not in the office, how are you going to run over it ?!

If you’re a CEO with unlimited PTO, don’t blame your employees for using it. This is a benefit that YOU offers. Keep your promise or lose the trust of your team. Remember, a recharged brain is a productive brain and who wants those low Glassdoor approval ratings? Eek.

Let’s say we’re all on teams of fully functional adults who show up for jobs we love and are really good at. We share a goal, we dedicate ourselves to a mission, and we get the job done. If we work together and for each other, unlimited PTO shouldn’t be a problem.

Why should you care if your coworker takes time off every other Friday? Why shouldn’t you feel comfortable taking two weeks to travel to Bali if that means you come back refreshed and ready to go? Why should you worry if someone is taking a sanity day here and there?

Well-rested people are productive people. People who have traveled a lot are interesting people. Well-groomed people stick around.

Before phasing out unlimited PTO, start using this perk as a litmus test for productivity and cultural happiness. You might be surprised at what you find.

Britney has been released. Bennifer has returned. Broadway too, yes! And in fact, the Beatles! As for Bond – James Bond – he said goodbye, at least the Daniel Craig version.

Harry and Meghan spoke to Oprah, and boy, we listened. We also listened to Taylor Swift, who sang a failed story and still missing scarf (ex-lovers: hang on to knits at your peril!)

It was a year for reunion: the cast of “Friends” for example, and three of the quartet of “Sex and the City”, in a reboot. And covers: “West Side Story” caused a sensation at the Oscars 60 years after the original. Even Tony Soprano came back, sort of, for a minute.

The live performances brought a wary joy – wary because at any time it could stop. And the cool guys won it – at least in the TV comedy, where “Ted Lasso,” Jason Sudeikis’ show about an endearing and serious American coach transplanted to ruthless British football, swept the Emmys. The entire cast of “Ted Lasso” was awesome, but if we’re looking to capture the vibe of the year, maybe let’s watch the goldfish.

Which?

You know, the goldfish. The happiest animal, Lasso likes to tell his players because he only has a 10-second memory (although the science may differ). It’s good when you hold a grudge in sports, but also when you’re trying to get through a roller coaster year like 2021, when we thought we were up and then down again. And even. And even.

So over to you, happy goldfish. And here’s our highly subjective annual trip to the pop culture past:

JANUARY

On the inauguration day, a star was born, and we are not talking about an elected official. AMANDA GORMAN, 22 years old, captivates a nation, reciting “The Hill We Climb” in her distinctive yellow coat and red headband. Within hours, the eloquent national youth poet gained over a million followers on Instagram (now nearly 4 million); soon, she has million-copy book orders, a modeling contract, and a hosting gig at the Met Gala. Inaugural Star Finalist: BERNIE SANDERS MITTS, inspiration for many bobbleheads.

FEBRUARY

“Could the whole night have been an email?” »The co-host TINA FEY asks the Golden Globes, an awkward virtual ceremony that still has its heartwarming moments, including a heart-wrenching speech by TAYLOR SIMONE LEDWARD, widow of posthumous winner CHADWICK BOSEMAN: “I don’t have his words.” These Globes will be remembered, however, for the revelations of the shocking lack of diversity within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. A judge confirms – for now – the tutelage governing BRITNEY SPEARS, as a new documentary, “Coach Britney Spears”, sheds light on the troubling case.

MARCH

It’s a big night for women at the Grammys, where SWIFT becomes the first female performer to win album of the year three times, and BEYONCÉ gets her 28th victory to become the most decorated woman in Grammy history. But the biggest news this month is from HARRY and MEGHAN explosive interview, in which Meghan talks about a fairytale life that turned dark and made her suicidal, and alleges she suffered racism in the royal family.

APRIL

It was time. CHLOÉ ZHAO wins the Oscar for best director for her lyric “Nomadland”, only the second woman in history (and the first woman of color). The Oscars in person but stripped back pay off glamor red carpet – t the abrupt end was super weird, though. April is also the Titanic’s birthday month – note due to BOWEN YANG’s hilarious identity theft, on “Saturday Night Live”, of the iceberg himself, who has overtaken this sinking thing but is eager to promote his album.

CAN

Let’s dedicate this month to Friends – which means “Friends,” aka Joey and Phoebe and Chandler and Monica and Rachel and Ross, who hold their long-awaited reunion, Among the revelations: a previously unknown mutual crush between JENNIFER ANISTON and DAVID SCHWIMMER, and LADY GAGA’s fondness for Phoebe’s “Smelly Cat.” Also: the monkeys who played Marcel weren’t nice, and this is the last meeting (we’ll see that).

JUNE

One of Hollywood’s most compelling relationships i is apparently finished. KIM KARDASHIAN WEST explains in “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” why she filed for divorce from KANYE WEST in February: “I don’t want a husband who lives in a completely different state,” she says, and “I want to someone who wants to work with me. SPEARS talking, telling a judge that she wants her life back. “I lied and told the whole world I’m fine,” she says. She was not.

JULY

The good guys don’t always end up last – especially not in 2021, when audiences seem to crave something playful, folkloric, and naive. The second season of “Ted Lasso” begins this month, bringing a new set of challenges for the kind manager and his neglected club, AFC Richmond. In two months, the show gonna sweep the comedy Emmys – We’re telling you right now, because our September entry will be packed! “One hell of a year,” Sudeikis would say, like a lasso.

AUGUST

Who saw this coming? It’s BENNIFER! Almost 20 years after their very public romance, JENNIFER LOPEZ and BEN AFFLECK found each other, and they pack their bags on the PDA, with pictures of paparazzi kissing at dinner, on a yacht, on red carpets … the Internet is cheering. On a sad note, it’s the end of a rock’n’roll era like ROLLING STONES drummer CHARLIE WATTS – the band’s beat AND heartbeat – died at the age of 80, just before the Stones returned to tour.

SEPTEMBER

“There is no place like home! This is the original Glinda, KRISTIN CHENOWETH, welcoming the Broadway audience again to “Méchants”. Enthusiastic post-pandemic theatergoers – masked and vaccinated – also flock to hits like “Waitress,” “Hadestown,” “The Lion King” and “Hamilton.” The Met Gala is back, with mandatory PCR tests and a decidedly young atmosphere led by the hosts TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET (in sweatshirts and boots), BILLIE EILISH, GORMAN and tennis star NAOMI OSAKA. At the Emmys, it’s lasso time, and also salute time the heroine of the comedy JEAN SMART, who won a trophy and reveled in his “JEANaissance”. New on TV: South Korean survival drama “Squid Game”, a daring entry. In the courtroom, music star R. KELLY convicted of sex trafficking – an important step in the #MeToo movement, especially for black victims of sexual abuse.

OCTOBER

In a moment almost too good to be true, life meets art, CAPTAIN KIRK himself boldly flies away in the space. A distraught WILLIAM SHATNER, 90 years old space traveler, describes the atmosphere that keeps humanity alive as “thinner than your skin”. DANIEL CRAIG makes his last Bond release in “No Time to Die”. And while TONY SOPRANO may or may not be dead, depending on how you viewed that dinner scene in the finale, he’s back as a teenager in the prequel “Many Saints of Newark,” played by none other than MICHAEL GANDOLFINI, son of James. The film, however, is not thriving at the box office – unlike Sony Pictures’ Marvel sequel “Venom: Let There Be Carnage,” which enjoys a huge opening. A real-life tragedy hits a movie set like a shot fired by actor ALEC BALDWIN accidentally kills cinematographer HALYNA HUTCHINS, horrifying an industry and boosting calls for a ban on all firearms on the trays.

NOVEMBER

It’s not quite a BEATLES reunion, but the PETER JACKSON doc “Come back” gives hungry fans eight hours of previously unseen footage. And it’s BRITNEY time: a judge at last terminates the guardianship who controlled the life of the pop singer for almost 14 years. “The best day of my life,” she says. SWIFT publishes a 10-minute interpretation of the bloated single “All Too Well”. Saddened Broadway community says goodbye to STEPHEN SONDHEIM, beloved titan of musical theater. An unimaginable tragedy strikes the world of music: during a chaotic concert by TRAVIS SCOTT, eight people (and later, two more, including a 9 year old boy ) are killed as a crowd rushes to the stage.

DECEMBER

No more reunions and returns. SPIDER-MAN is back, as is CARRIE BRADSHAW, in her fifties (and her pals MIRANDA and CHARLOTTE but not SAMANTHA). Nostalgia peaks with the exciting news “West Side Story” directed by STEVEN SPIELBERG, with a screenplay by TONY KUSHNER and live choreography by JUSTIN PECK. With more disturbing pandemic news on the horizon, we can all do with a moving distraction like this – as we continue to wait, to paraphrase the Fab Four, come back, come back, come back to where we belonged. in the past.

Him deeply offensive transphobic and homophobic jokes, Dave chappelle, will be performing at the ‘Netflix Is A Joke’ comedy festival, if you need more proof that the cancellation culture doesn’t actually exist.

Earlier this year, Netflix backed its decision to keep the Chappelle comedy special. The closest after being criticized for belittling the gay and trans communities.

In case you missed it, Dave Chappelle at one point used his platform to declare himself a “TERF Team” (aka a radical trans-exclusionary feminist), as well as to advocate for notorious transphobic / 2000 rats in a combination of skin. Jk rowling and homophobic rapper the baby.

co-CEO of Netflix Ted sarandos then defended the special, claiming in a email seen by Variety that “although some employees disagree, we strongly believe that on-screen content does not translate directly into harm in the real world.”

The comments – and the special – were quickly criticized by the queer community, which pointed out that trans people in particular already experience significant violence and harassment.

It also led to a massive backlash from LGBTQIA + Netflix employees, who organized a number of walkouts.

At the time, Dave Chapelle criticized criticism (the phrase most in 2021) like canceling culture, saying “Thank goodness for Ted Sarandos and Netflix: he’s the only one who hasn’t canceled me yet.”

And clearly, Chapelle was right: his appearance at the Netflix comedy festival is proof that being canceled for transphobia isn’t enough to get you kicked off the festival circuit.

The festival itself – which was originally scheduled for 2020 – is a series of over 100 Los Angeles-based stand-up shows that will take place in April and May 022. Ironically, part of the festival will be a show titled “Stand Out: An LGBTQ + celebration featuring Wanda sykes and Fortune Feimster.

Interestingly, queer and loml Australian icon Hannah gadsby was scheduled for the festival when it was originally announced according to Deadline. The comedian, who had already spoken of The closest when it premiered, no longer listed as one of the performers.
