A year after the earthquake in Bantul, in May 2007, the Ford Foundation initiated a network with the aim to increase the conditions for villagers concerning housing, health, gender, budget transparency and culture. This program has been running during one year in five different villages in the Bantul area (south of Yogyakarta): Joho, Kedungpring, Klisat, Warungpring and Kadisoro.

Cemeti Art House has participated especially in the cultural field, to create programs to re-vivid the local arts that have been absent, because of the earthquake or because of other reasons for a longer time. The local art forms, which in the villages are mostly the performing arts, have been activated and this has contributed to strengthen and rebuilding of social life in the villages. During the year, we not only supported rehearsals with experts, but we also introduced new methods through workshops, etc.

Cemeti Art House and our team of experts, stimulated small scale performances by using local / traditional skills and materials, with the goal to bring enthusiasm and joy. Besides this they also learned - how to organize art events in the future, - set up a network and - how to increase and develop their creative skills and - how cultural events can make a contribution to articulate their problems.

This festival is the final event of the year program.

We start with a carnival of hundreds participants with beautiful costumes and attributes, created of recycled and natural materials. One village uses only bamboo for their properties and one village makes special masks.

After the carnival, performances will take place during the day with a great variety from children horse dances, trance dances till all kinds of theater performances.

This program is supported by : Ford Foundation
