Day IV encouraged dialogues among the participants and facilitators to
examine the issues, and seek consensus on the appropriate mixture and
balance between the old and the new framework.
The assessment of how these activities contributed to achieving the project’s stated objectives :
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. It consists of the whole audience of this training & workshop.
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 :
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.
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.
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 :
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)
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:
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.
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.
Australia sends a representative to the proposed Indonesian Heritage
Conference in August 2007, to ensure that there is appropriate follow
to the matters identified.
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
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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
2. Pilot Project to test the developed Charter
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
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.
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
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.
pilot project in partnership with the Bali Kuna Heritage Society for a
‘village cultural tourism plan’ could be developed as a key pilot
Funding is required, along with both heritage and tourism partnerships.
5. Individual/Organisational Partnerships
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.
