About us

Arkademy is a photography collective with focus on critical and reflective photography education through an interdisciplinary approach. Members of our collective come from various professional backgrounds: documentary photographer, educator, researcher, and curator. We are interested in exploring social phenomena through the photographic medium, the role and influence of photography in society, as well as the relationship between image and life, photographers and their subjects. Members of our collective are based in three cities: Jakarta, Bogor and Yogyakarta.

What we do

Arkademy’s main activities revolve around educational programs particularly collaborative photography workshops with local communities across Indonesia. Arkademy has also engaged in partnerships with various organizations — carrying out thematic photography workshops, educational programs, and exhibitions on photography and society, as well as public discussions and portfolio reviews. Since 2018 until early 2020, Arkademy has carried out 14 workshops in 10 cities across Indonesia and one photography exhibition in Jakarta. In 2020, Arkademy launched a rubric called WICARA, a critical, reflective, and interdisciplinary space for thoughts and stories on photography and society.
