Dr Sadiah Boonstra, trained as a Curator and Historian, formerly served as the Specialist for International Collaboration, Curatorial Affairs and Collection Management at the Indonesian Heritage Agency. With over two decades of experience, she has worked at institutions such as National Gallery Singapore, The British Museum (London), Tropenmuseum (Amsterdam), and the National Prison Museum (Netherlands). Demonstrating her expertise role in the cultural history, heritage, and the performing and visual arts of colonial and contemporary Indonesia, Dr Boonstra is Postdoctoral Researcher at VU University (Amsterdam) and Honorary Senior Fellow at the University of Melbourne.

In 2020, recognizing the lack of expertise in the field of museums and heritage in Indonesia, Dr Boonstra established CultureLab Consultancy or shortly CultureLab. In under three years, CultureLab has rapidly grown to a team of 10 staff members, demonstrating it fills a gap in Indonesia’s cultural landscape and a keen understanding of the evolving needs of museums and their audiences.
