About Program

Fine arts, theater, music and dance will each be emphasized in our academies. Guitar playing is extremely popular in North Sulawesi and is featured in most church services there; it is the most popular of all student instruments. We plan to have a strong arts component, with artists from around the world working with both children and older adults. For example, a visiting Japanese artist could create a stone garden, or a Dutch artist-in-residence could build a modern sculpture representing the intersection of cultures and ages found on our campuses.

Artists will be chosen from around the world, but also from Indonesia, Haiti and Guyana. Indonesian art is starting to be collected with enthusiasm internationally. Recent auctions at Sotheby's and Christie's produced a 'boom' in Indonesia art. Of special interest will be sculptures to help create our Rain Forest Sculpture Gardens, and painters and photographers to capture the early years of the Institutes.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.
