In early January 2020, when I was invited to give a talk for this IMADe conference, many of us here today were already working locally to envision and implement ways to promote the diversity of cultural expressions and advance creativity for sustainable development. With that in mind, I looked for relevant literature and noticed that our conference topic was the theme for the inaugural World Conference on Creative Economy: Inclusively Creative held in Nusa Dua, Bali in November 2018 and is also in the initiative by the Republic of Indonesia for a United Nations resolution, adopted in December 2019, to declare 2021 as the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. But, since mid-March 2020, people everywhere in the world are living in the time of the global Covid-19 pandemic, which has accelerated this great challenge especially to meet basic human needs. These unfoldings spurred me to reflect on two parallel movements: one is the trajectory of related conceptual trends and international frameworks since 2015; the other is the emerging of some local small-scale innovations since the silent day of Nyepi 2020. Clearly current mobility and resource limitations are having an impact on the culture sector. Yet, it still seems possible that inclusively creative praxis for sandang, pangan, papan (clothing, food, and shelter) can contribute to the betterment of the world.
