Launched in 2017, ACICIS’ Creative Arts and Design Professional Practicum (CADPP) exposes students to the vibrancy of contemporary Indonesian arts and cultural production, combining academic elements with hands-on practical creative production experience. Running from early January to mid-February each year, the CADPP is a six-week intensive academic and vocational study program in Indonesia for high-achieving upper undergraduate Australian and international students.
The two main aims of the CADPP are to:
- Provide students with a practical learning experience with a Host Organisation (or individual artist, artist collective or art/design studio) in an Indonesian creative arts and design workplace environment; and
- To enhance bilateral understanding through the creation of new partnerships between Australian and Indonesian counterparts, and to serve as a medium for the exchange of ideas in the field of creative arts and design.
