World Heritage Camp Participants Explore Yogyakarta Culture

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A total of 45 students joined the World Heritage Camp Indonesia (WHCI) would explore the cultural heritage in Yogyakarta starting Friday, September 7. Eight of the total participants came from ASEAN countries.

An official from the Directorate of Heritage and Cultural Diplomacy of Education and Culture Ministry, Anton Wibisono, said the activity was held in the wake of the vulnerability of world cultural heritage and the participants were the chosen students.

“They are highly motivated and have critical thinking skills as to encourage the efforts in protecting and promoting global cultural heritage in Indonesia,” Anton said at Griya Batik Winoto Sastro, Yogyakarta.

Yogyakarta is selected as WHCI destination because of its complex cultural heritage since many cultures live in the region. Anton expected the students would acknowledge cultural heritage (tangible or intangible culture) particularly in Yogyakarta and its relation to UNESCO convention.

The participants were brought to Braholo Cave in Gunungkidul, Kendulan Temple in Sleman, Kotagede, and Keraton Yogya as well as griya batik (workshop) and wayang to explore the non-physical or intangible cultural heritage.

“We also take them to Beringharjo market to interact with and interview the local community and traders regarding batik. They experience to partake in the batik-making process,” he added.
