The Best Cities for Young Artists

Jakarta

If digital is your medium, you won’t find a better place to be right now than Indonesia, who has more Facebook users than Canada has people, and where internet cafes are a daily visit. Investors from the West have their eye on mobile, broadcasting and start-ups, all growing trends across the country that make it easy for youngsters to take to their own businesses. Creative collectives like Askara, a bookstore where the hip commune, Serrum, a community for arts education, and Kampong Segart, a student art union, give the space and inspiration for this new wave of Indonesian trend makers.
