As proved, Balinese culture stores cultural heritage elements
of immense diversity and wealth, and it retains functionality
in the life of Balinese community, Indonesian and even a great
number of earth dwellers. Culture breathes life to Balinese ethnic
group. It is the cast of Balinese identity, an asset of economic
value and a tourism appeal. For Indonesia, it reserves a special
position as communication media and nation integrity. For the
World, it presents its unique culture as world culture.
These cultural heritage elements, however , are not recorded into
integrated and standardized database inventory, even they have
so far been devoid of any community based approach. The low level
of computerisation in the management of information in Bali and
the dispersed nature of existing records requires a base level
assessment of existing information sources and the design and
development of an inventory system suited to the particular cultural
heritage and management requirements of Bali.
- Provide a presentation of cultural heritage information useful
for cultural, educational, tourism, traditional village (desa
adat) development, and related sectors.
- Develop an accessible and user-friendly database program for
widely community based approach.
- Motivate the grass root and all level of communities to a capacity
to identify their own heritage
- Presentate Bali Cultural heritage as local, national and world
