Session Abstract

Please note that this special session this session will be conducted as a Focus Group discussion which would mainly consist of panelists and discussant who would table their thoughts from different angles based on their written papers or academic notes. The result of the Special Session will be used as the main reference for the speech of the Major of Bandung City in the Globelics Conference 2016’s Special Dinner and Cultural Event.

The idea of creative city, that was firstly conceptualized as a new urban planning paradigm and strategy by David Yencken, has been an inspiration for many local governments to develop a new concept that amplifies the welfare quality and the performance of a city based on creativities and innovative attitudes of its inhabitants. In the Indonesian context, Bandung City has been taking the lead to become a typical Indonesian creative city beside Pekalongan. Under the recent city government, many public spaces in Bandung have been transformed into free and creative spaces, enjoying affluent budgetary allocation and being more dynamic due to the boost of creative economy and many programs and cooperations concerning creative industry. Accordingly, in the public policy sector, Bandung City Government has been putting special concern on the protection and commercialization of creative products of Bandung people.

This feature, however, is still far from the ideal one. In this regard, it is very relevant to discuss ‘Creative City’ from many angles to comprehend the idea about how we can better develop Bandung as a creative city.
