The assessment of how these activities contributed to achieving the project’s stated objectives :

    • In these activities, the participants invited to present their experiences, problems, and ideas for the future to be discussed and analysed together with the other participants. The general technical solutions relevant to each audience had presented and discussed. The issues specific to their organizations had raised by the trainers for discussion by the groups.
    • The participant could have a chance to implement the knowledge and experiences from the training and workshop on each of their organization at their places after the training and workshop completed. They could have more exercises and discussions after they leave the training. They could have discussions in their respective cities, and they could also have inter city discussions.
    • A heritage network for information sharing had been established by a miling list named heritage-communitygroups@yahoo.com. It consists of  the whole audience of this training & workshop.
    • The involvement of trainers and speakers from many sectors include private sector persons, enterpreneurs and  traditional community stakeholders within  dialogues among participants generate the more awareness of heritage conservation and a broader sense understanding covering inter sector, inter discipline and inter domain of heritage conservation.
    • These activities endorse some ideas on strategic development program of Indonesia heritage organizations based on their achievement of effective organization and operational.

II.
 NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS / AUDIENCE

Total number of audience was 42 persons, consisted of :

    • 19 participants
    • 13 observers
    • 10 speakers

(list of detail is attached)


III. MEDIA COVERAGE

The publications spread to the national heritage actors, heritage organizations and wide community through mailing list, personal email and Bali Kuna’s website. Some socialization had been approached the Bali Province local government as well as the Ministry of Culture and Tourism Republic Indonesia. There were some funding contributions from Mayor of Denpasar City, Cultural Office of Gianyar Regency, Regent of Klungkung Regency; all under Bali Province authority. We had received a good response from Minister of Culture and Tourism that instruct Drs. Soeroso, Director of Archeology to represented him and gave his speech on the Welcoming Dinner / Opening Ceremony.
Unfortunately the media coverage from press and electronic media was limited. There was only Bali Post journalist made an interview by phone to Bali Kuna regarding this event. It seems that the other media found difficulties to reach the venue, that somehow it is a hidden place that in purpose for the shake of training concentration.

IV. ANY DIFFICULTIES EXPERIENCED IN EXECUTING THE PROJECT
As the organizing committee of Bali Kuna Heritage Society had worked hard for the smooth of the project preparation and implementation, but it is remained some difficulties experienced in executing the project :

    • Lack of volunteers to assist Bali Kuna team. Most of them are student dominantly, there as the project timeframe had faced their examination session. The Bali Kuna core team by 7 persons organized this project.
    • Some speakers delayed their paper submission until Day-1. It influenced the completeness of training module.
    • Some participants hardly completed their Abstract, Draft of Organization Program 2007, and Draft Project Proposals in both of Bahasa Indonesia and English. It seems that most of them had not well prepared for participating in this project, though the invitation had circulated since one and half months before.
    • The limited time availability for classes made the audience had better and closer communication/interaction during informal session.

V. INCLUDE COMMENTS ABOUT HOW THE GRANT AWARD AND MONITORING COULD BE IMPROVED
The grant award had benefit the development of heritage organizations management in Indonesia. Nevertheless there are some comments for their future improvement :

    • It is needed a representative from AI Institution during the implementation stage. It is not merely the monitoring part of the project, but their attendance would give a real support for the beneficiaries. It is certainly easier to follow up the further program and arrange their sustainability.
    • It is clearly that some projects required the next year program for providing the evaluation of their  project implementation. Due to this Training and Workshop consensus, the participants need to have a chance to implement the knowledge and experiences from the training and workshop on each of their organization at their places after the training and workshop completed. They need at least one workshop at the end of the next year for having discussion on evaluation of what they have done after they leave the training.

VI. FUTURE ACTIVITIES EXPECTED TO BE INITIATED FOLLOWING THE COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT
The completion of the project put on a consensus of the project follow up. This is reminded some activities to be detailed as a heritage cooperation project between Indonesia and Australia.

INDONESIA AND AUSTRALIA – HERITAGE COOPERATION PROJECTS
(Detailed by Penny Cook)

The Australian delegates completed a report on the November Workshop, which was forwarded to Colin Griffiths (ACNT), Simon Molesworth (Immediate Past Chairman, ACNT and the ACNT’s on-going international representative) and Patrick Comben (Chairman, ACNT).

There were four recommendations as follows:

  1. That the Australian National Trust movement continue to work with the Indonesian Heritage Trust. There are a number of ‘micro’ projects that could be developed within current resources, using individuals in Australian National Trusts.
  1. That an appropriate person is designated in Australia to work with the Director of the Indonesian Heritage Trust to develop more detailed proposals based on the opportunities identified. The person to report regularly to ACNT Board meetings.
  1. That Australia sends a representative to the proposed Indonesian Heritage Conference in August 2007, to ensure that there is appropriate follow to the matters identified.
  1. That the International Affairs Committee of the ACNT gives consideration to approaching individual state/territory Trusts to ascertain there interest in acting in a mentoring capacity to a heritage society/trust in Indonesia.

If matters are to be advanced with a cooperative selection of strategic pilot projects, such projects should be mutually identified and outlined prior to the ACNT Board meeting in May in Brisbane. It is suggested that Suhadi Hadiwinoto, Executive Director, Indonesian Heritage Trust attend the ACNT Board meeting at the ACNT expense to discuss proposed projects (and to use time to develop the detail of such projects) and to possibly also visit Canberra for relevant meetings with potential funding bodies.

In regard to recommendation 2 above, I am able to continue with cooperative development of projects in partnership with the new Executive Director of the National Trust of Queensland, Stewart Armstrong. It is also anticipated that the Executive Officer of the ACNT will continue an active role in the overall project.

The following is a very draft program, and designed as a basis to commence discussion of follow-up work. It is also mindful of Pak Suhadi’s emphasis that heritage will be best demonstrated through projects and subsequent promotion. The timing of development of a program links with the May 2007 ACNT meeting and the Indonesian meeting in August 2007.

 

General Programs

1. Development of the Indonesian Charter for Heritage Conservation

The Workshop identified the need for more detailed guidelines on a range of heritage activity. The 2003 Indonesian Charter for Heritage Conservation also identifies the need for further work, including implementation through an Action Plan for the Indonesian Heritage Decade 2004-2013.

The Macro Framework for follow up from the November Workshop also gave a priority to policy, strategy and legal support and it is feasible that such matters can be developed as part of the implementation of the Charter.

This program could be developed at very little cost, involving a team of Indonesians and Australians, as well as key people from other countries including India (because of its recent development of heritage activity). It could be highlighted with funding bodies as a voluntary program whereby a group of heritage people donate their time to the development of specific guidelines and policies. There could be a core group that develops agreed policies, plus a peer assessment group.

The International National Trust Organisation may also wish to take a role in working with the Indonesian Heritage Trust on the range of potential structures in Indonesia, aimed at giving more strength to the community’s role with heritage.

2. Pilot Project to test the developed Charter

This would be a heritage conservation project through all stages of planning to physical works and promotion. This would require funding. It may also be appropriate for such a project to be developed through one of the Indonesian groups. 

3. Education Projects

There are no cultural heritage management courses available at universities in Indonesia and the Indonesian Heritage Trust identified a partnership with an Australian University as a priority project.

There are issues of funding for such a project. It may also be appropriate for the Charter to be developed for Indonesian cultural circumstances prior to the development of such courses.

Technical education in all forms of conservation are also required.

4. Cultural Tourism

The Workshop identified the need for planning for cultural tourism as a priority, and undertook a field trip to a village that has already agreed to take part in a heritage inventory through the Bali Kuna Heritage Society.  There was also recognition that funding in Indonesia can be achieved through Government tourism sources.

A pilot project in partnership with the Bali Kuna Heritage Society for a ‘village cultural tourism plan’ could be developed as a key pilot project. 

Funding is required, along with both heritage and tourism partnerships.

5. Individual/Organisational Partnerships

It is recommended that the core group (from Item 1) give consideration to developing a matrix of both Indonesian and Australian expertise and needs, involving National Trusts (and like organizations), professional organizations and Government agencies as a basis for on-going mutual consultations on a one-by-one basis. For example, I was asked about a range of specific heritage matters from Art Deco documentation to arresting deterioration on a tin dredge. Intangible heritage is also a key interest in Indonesia.
