This project responds to concerns expressed by the Government of Jakarta at the decreasing interest and potential loss of traditional Indonesian cultural heritage due to the excessive number of shopping malls now operating in central Jakarta. Warung Budaya (Culture Vendor) explores how an informal consumerist space could be used to promote traditional cultural heritage practices by proposing a new type of street vendor for traditional artists, performers and practitioners of wayang (shadow puppet performance), angklung (musical instrument), batik (cloth dyeing technique using wax) and dhakon (traditional game). The outcome of this project is the design of a set of ‘start-up’ vendor kits. They contain easy-to-use instructions and locally sourced building materials that ‘Culture Vendors’ can set-up and operate autonomously, providing a sustainable income and future for these traditional cultural heritage practitioners.
