The aim of Arte-Polis Biennale is to bring together academics, artist-craftsmen, community leaders, local government officials, policy-makers and professionals from different regions of the world concerned with the quality of life and livelihood of creative communities in both urban and rural settings. Participants come from a diverse range of disciplines, including architecture, landscape architecture and planning, business and management, cultural and development studies, design and visual arts, digital-media and information-communication technology, economics and geography, as well as the arts and humanities. Its objective is to share international experiences and knowledge regarding current issues, best practices and policy implications on the relationship between creative culture, community-building and place-making.

The inaugural Arte-Polis was held between 21-23 July 2006 on the ITB campus in Bandung, Indonesia. The event hailed the theme "Creative Culture and the Making of Place" through an international seminar on Urban Culture, a design workshop on Dago Creative Corridor, an exhibition on Heteropia and 36 Frames, as well as a bazaar featuring a Taste of Bandung. Keynote speakers of the 2006 Arte-Polis international seminar was Professor Alexander R. CUTHBERT of the University of New South Wales, Australia, and Professor Dorodjatun KUNTJORO-JAKTI, former Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs, Goverment of Indonesia.
