About us

Scroll down for English version

Didirikan di pertengahan 2008 di Surabaya, C2O library & collabtive adalah perpustakaan dan ruang kerja bersama (co-working space) yang dikelola secara swadaya. Misinya adalah menciptakan ruang, alat dan materi bagi manusia (dan bukan-manusia) untuk belajar, bekerja, berkarya, dan berinteraksi dengan beragam komunitas dan lingkungan sekitarnya, berlandaskan pikiran dan tindakan yang terbuka dan kritis.

C2O bekerja mencapai misi ini dengan bekerja bersama anggota dan berbagai pihak dalam menciptakan ekosistem dan alat bersama (shared ecosystem & tools) untuk (1) mengumpulkan, menata, dan berbagi informasi melalui koleksi buku, film, dan media lainnya; (2) mendorong tumbuhnya produksi pengetahuan dan inovasi melalui kegiatan seperti diskusi, workshop, kelas bahasa, penerbitan, dsb.; (3) mengembangkan jaringan organisasi dan individu lokal-nasional-internasional

Beberapa liputan media mengenai C2O dapat dibaca di sini.

Kegiatan

Kegiatan kami antara lain adalah penelitian dan pengembangan lintas disiplin, publikasi (buku, jurnal, video), lokakarya, diskusi buku, pemutaran film, obrolan santai & berbagi, lokakarya, jelajah kota, pameran, pameran, festival, dan berbagai kegiatan lainnya,

Tiga program utama kami adalah Ayorek! (platform pengetahuan perkotaan), Design It Yourself (konferensi-festival festival tahunan), dan Manic Street Walkers (tur jalan kaki).

Katalog koleksi perpustakaan

Ada lebih dari 7000 buku, jurnal di C2O dalam bahasa Inggris dan Indonesia, dengan fokus pada budaya, kajian Indonesia, desain, seni, sastra, sejarah. Juga lebih dari 1,000 film, yang memfokuskan pada film-film klasik Hollywood, film berbahasa non-Inggris, dan film Indonesia—dengan kata lain, film-film yang kurang mendapat tempat siar di bioskop lokal. Katalog koleksi C2O dapat dilihat online (versi beta, belum termasuk koleksi film).

Keanggotaan perpustakaan diperlukan untuk peminjaman buku. Silakan membaca keterangan sistem keanggotaan perpustakaan.

Titip jual buku dan produk lainnya

Kami juga menyediakan saluran distribusi produk lokal, khususnya untuk buku, jurnal, zine, dan berbagai produk pilihan, maupun pemesanan buku impor. Silakan membaca informasinya di sini.

Co-working & ruang galeri serbaguna

C2O menyediakan fasilitas ruang belajar dan bekerja (co-working space, atau warnet dengan laptop sendiri ;) ), ruang pertemuan, dan ruang galeri serbaguna yang dapat digunakan untuk pameran, festival, diskusi, pentas musik, pemutaran film, dan sebagainya.

Silakan cek informasi tarif dan fasilitas ruang co-working atau galeri serbaguna kami.

Pendanaan

Biaya operasional sehari-hari C2O dikumpulkan secara swadaya melalui biaya keanggotaan; sewa buku, peralatan, tempat; penjualan produk dan tiket acara; donasi pengunjung; dan konsinyasi titip jual.

Hibah dari organisasi donor ataupun sponsor sejauh ini bukanlah untuk pendanaan operasional, tapi untuk projek penelitian dan seni. Beberapa penghargaan, dana hibah, dan sponsor yang telah kami terima dari organisasi lokal hinggal internasional antara lain adalah Social Enterprise Challenge for Arts, Creative & Tourism Organisations (Diageo-British Council, 2015), the Creative Cities Research (British Council, 2015), Urban Aspirations (Ford Foundation, 2014), dan Urban Knowledge Dynamics (Ford Foundation, 2012-2013). Selain itu, kami acapkali bekerjasama dengan kampus (ITS, UK Widya Mandala, Unair, Univ Ciputra, UK Petra, dsb.) dalam penyelenggaraan konferensi, seminar, lokakarya, diskusi.

Established in mid-2008 in the centre of Surabaya, C2O library & collabtive is an independent library and co-working space. Founded initially in response to the problem of inadequate, fragmented information & library system and infrastructure in Indonesia, C2O mission is create a shared, nurturing space, building tools and resources for humans (and non-humans) to learn, work, and interact with diverse communities and surrounding environment. In other words, with the world around us.

C2O work towards its mission by collaborating with its members and various parties in creating a shared ecosystem and tools to (1) collect, organise, and share information through our collections of books, films, and other media, (2) foster innovation, knowledge production & sharing by organising discussions, workshops, classes, publications, etc.; (3) develop local-national-international solidarity networks.

Some media coverage, publications, and presentations on C2O are available here

Activities

Within and beyond our shared library & lab-space, our activities include trans-disciplinary, trans-border research(-action) & development, publication (book, journal, video), workshops, conference, roundtable & talks, film screenings, music & art performance, exhibitions, media lab, festival, etc. 

Our three main program are Ayorek! (urban knowledge platform), Design It Yourself (annual design conference-festival), and Manic Street Walkers (city walking tour). 

Collection catalog

We have more than 7000 books, journals, zines, in English and Indonesian, with emphasis on cultural studies, anthropology, Indonesian studies, design, arts, literature, and history.  We also have more than 1,000 films focusing on classic, foreign language, and Indonesian films. In other words, they are books and films that can hardly get a shelf or a screening within the dominant distribution systems in Indonesia. You can access the beta version of our catalog online (note that our films haven’t been catalogued yet).

Note that library membership is required to borrow from our collection.
