The Art Goodwill Team of Ganesha Education University (Undiksha) Singaraja will present the arts of Indonesia at the Université de La Rochelle, France and Windesheim University in the Netherlands. The opportunity was obtained after successfully qualifying as a representative of Indonesia in order to strengthen the international cooperation. This art show will be held on September 8-11, 2014.
The art troupe supported by 30 artists comprises 23 students and lecturers. The arts to be displayed include the theater Layonsari composed by Kadek Sonia Piscayanti and traditional dances of Indonesian archipelago. Among them, there will be the dances of Aceh, Batak, Papua and Bali. In addition, it will also be held a workshop on Papuan body painting, painting with the puppet technique and the dances of Bali.
Eight recent works of art created by the Balinese artists make proud. The works of art are not only beautiful and entertaining, but also proving that Balinese artists continue working endlessly. These works of art were introduced and staged on open stage of the Indonesia Institute of the Arts (ISI) Denpasar in a series with the art night of the Anniversary XI and graduation day XIII, Thursday (Jul 24).
In the performance, there were at least 4 works of creation dance and 4 works of gamelan music as well as a work of installation art. They were supported by the students of the two faculties, namely the Faculty of Arts and Design (FSRD) and the Faculty of Performing Arts (FSP). The students denoting the candidates of the academic artists were good at visualizing the imagination of the choreographer or the composer.
Buleleng Endek Carnival (BEC) does not only pose the resurrection for typical endek cloth of Buleleng, but also serves a means of documenting the motifs of North Balinese endek. Evidently, Buleleng is rich in the art and culture as proved to have 19 motifs of endek. All motifs have been documented and stored in the form of documentary film.
Childhood is very beautiful, sportive and attractive. Each activity does not only foster an attitude of togetherness, sometimes it also leads to positive competition spurring the creativity. It is a brief illustration of the old days of children featured again through the Rare Bali Festival or Bali Kids Festival. This cultural event was held at the Penggak Men Mersi House of Culture, Denpasar for three days (Aug 7-9).
Thousands of elementary school (SD) and High School (SMP) students looked to perform a variety of cultural activities cheerfully. Some were playing, dancing, beating, drawing, telling story, plaiting klakat (bamboo ritual platform) and preparing oblations. At the beginning of the activities, children performed a cultural parade taking place at the intersection of Kesiman.
Creating an intelligent, culture-based and manageable community milieu is not adequate through formal education at school only. However, people should also equip themselves with the education of the art and moral to make them mentally strong. Considering studying Balinese art and culture poses a basic education of Hinduism, such learning is very important for younger generation. Departing from such a desire, the ashram then appears in numbers. Some are managed by customary village, while others by individuals or groups. Sekar Jepun Ashram, for instance, is managed by Ole customary village, while Buratwangi Ashram established on August 23, 2005 is managed by community group caring for culture. Both ashrams provide the education on culture to the younger generation.
