Project participants having discussion at the French Cultural Center, Yogyakarta - Indonesia

The idea behind the development of this project started with the invitation to the French based in Singapore artist Agathe de Bailliencourt for a residency in Yogyakarta with whom she will be collaborating with Arie Diyanto and other local artists from Yogyakarta, Bandung and Jakarta. CCF of Jakarta and Bandung were immediately interested to support an artist from their respective cities to take part in the project and inviting Aram from Jakarta (street artist) and Gustaff H. Iskandar from Bandung (media artist/researcher) for the video documentation on the process. More information about the project please visit this link.

Picture of the Week: The Hobo Never Sleep Tonight

Image work by Egga

Untitled (The Hobo Never Sleep Tonight)
Anugerah Pratama aka Egga  
Digital Print on Canvas
60 cm x 120 cm

Among his friends in Bandung, Anugerah Pratama aka Egga is known as designer, DJ and experimental musician. Most of his graphic works appears in the form of t-shirts, flyers, posters, etc. He often uses simple vector graphic icon, found images, cut and paste technique; playing with humor, irony and childhood object. In The Hobo Never Sleep Tonight, Egga shows a playful image of four legs black bird with a jewel crown, including his collection of graphic text & icons in the background. This in return, creates an enigmatic – almost like mockery icon – that questioning authority & our stereotype perception about particular sign/symbols.

Rumah Cemara Media Gathering at Common Room.

Last year we invite Rumah Cemara to come to Common Room during our annual community gathering program. In Bandung, Rumah Cemara were known as a place for those who have problems with drugs & HIV. They were the first among few civic organization who taking this issues seriously. During the gathering last year, we agree to work together with Rumah Cemara in order to help some of our friends & youngster in Bandung who have drugs & HIV problems.

As part of spreading information & public knowledge about drugs related problems, Rumah Cemara held a media gathering program in Common Room last weekend (20 Jan 2007). Many friends shows up and share their stories and experience. Rumah Cemara also invite Mr. Wirawan S.H., a law practicioneer who once work for LBH Bandung (Bandung Law Advocacy Organization). He share his knowledge about state law & regulation, concerning on drugs issues and some of its implications in Indonesia.

During our discussion, most of participants agree that people who have drugs related problems are the victim who have the same right with other citizens. They also have the right to get access on good healt care & education, besides having a job and earn a good living. As one of friend pronounce it: “we need no drugs if we have proper information & knowledge that can help us to earn a job and good living…”. Drugs is one of the complex problem in our society. Putting some people in jail will not solve the problem.
