Currently, despite the low awareness of the Convention among Civil Society Organizations (CSO), many CSOs and private companies have been working on initiatives that pursue the same objectives as the Convention. The forms of the activities are very diverse, from arts festivals and establishment of galleries to research and publications. Below are some examples of activities and organizations/institutions who have consistently (more than 3 years) undertaken related programmes.
Event-based/Festivals/Performing Arts: ArtJog, Jakarta Biennale, Bazaar Art, Java Jazz Festival, INA Craft (Jakarta International Handicraft Trade Fair), Jakarta Fashion Week, Jember Fashion Carnaval, Indonesian Dance Festival, Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, Makassar Writers Festival, Teater Koma, Wayang Orang Bharata, Papermoon Puppet Theatre, and Teater Garasi.
