C2O library & collabtive is an independent library and a collaborative space to learn, connect and create.
Founded in 2008 in Surabaya, the library provides collectively-generated collections of books, films, and other sources of information. We work towards advancing inter-disciplinary collaboration and research between members, artists, students, researchers and individuals of all types towards a more open, critical and empowered society.
Our activities include book launches, talks, film screenings, workshops, city walking trips, experimental research and other programs, documented on our website, blogs, monthly newsletters, and other publications. C2O also serves as distribution outlets for curated local books, journals, zines, other publications and stationeries, as well as for imported / rare book order.
C2O also provides venue hire for screening, discussion, and other special / private event. Almost all events are open for public, free of charge, though donations and any kinds of help are deeply appreciated with love. Library membership is only required to borrow from our collection.
