Abstract
The creative economy (CE) has recently been at the forefront of Indonesia’s development agenda. By harnessing human creativity and cultural resources, there is considerable potential for CE and the creative and cultural industries to contribute to economic growth and generate employment opportunities for the country’s expanding working-age population. However, the virtues of CE have largely been expressed in terms of economic value. This research seeks to understand why Indonesia’s youth are harnessing the potentials of CE by engaging in cultural entrepreneurship, and how this behavior can be understood in qualitative terms.

The creative economy (CE) has recently been at the forefront of Indonesia’s development agenda. By harnessing human creativity and cultural resources, there is considerable potential for CE and the creative and cultural industries to contribute to economic growth and generate employment opportunities for the country’s expanding working-age population. However, the virtues of CE have largely been expressed in terms of economic value. This research seeks to understand why Indonesia’s youth are harnessing the potentials of CE by engaging in cultural entrepreneurship, and how this behavior can be understood in qualitative terms. Employing Klamer’s (2017) value-based approach, this study uses a case study method to understand the values that are inherent in youth cultural entrepreneurship in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Using data based on 30 semi-structured interviews, this thesis finds that values not only have a significant influence on this type of entrepreneurial behavior, but that the ultimate values realized in the process are often expressed by the participants beyond their material significance. A struggle for authenticity of cultural production is reflected in its increased commodification and the need for relevant institutional support for creative business development. In order for the current generation to advance CE, it is seen to require innovative and creative reproductions of culture as opposed to its mere preservation. (Less)
