Their talents and various other acts connected with community art are often combined with events and social activities within and outside of this village.



The village of Jatitujuh need a space for creation, exploration and collaboration, to promote art as a way of life. For the past years they have been using temporary studio spaces, friends bamboo shacks, local coffee houses and their own lounge rooms to produce, discuss and practice their art and music. By building a central hub in this village for education and execution of creativity, it will provide easier access to art materials and space, therefor encouraging both the young and old in this village to play more of a participatory role in art creation and experimentation.
