ABOUT KOMUNITAS SALIHARA
Komunitas Salihara is an arts center active since August 8, 2008 and the first private multidisciplinary arts center in Indonesia.
Located on a 3,800 m2 plot of land on Jalan Salihara 16, Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, the Komunitas Salihara complex consists of three main buildings: Teater Salihara, Galeri Salihara, and office space. The black-box Teater Salihara is the only theater of its kind in Indonesia at this time. Currently, the Komunitas Salihara complex is expanding with additional facilities to include a rehearsal studio, guesthouse, and amphitheater.
Komunitas Salihara was formed by a number of writers, artists, journalists, and art lovers. Since it was established, Komunitas Salihara has presented a wide range of programs in arts and ideas; some of which are from abroad and world class quality.
Once named “The Best Art Space” (2010) by the magazine Time Out Jakarta and as one of the “10 Most Unique Places in Jakarta” (2010) by Metro TV, the architecture of Komunitas Salihara has also been described as, “Architecture which applies environmentally friendly aspects” by Green Design Award 2009.
Today Komunitas Salihara is visited by many people who wish to enjoy the high quality programs on arts and ideas, both classic and contemporary. Komunitas Salihara has also become a meeting place for groups with varied interests—such as writers, filmmakers, choreographers, young architects, those interested in philosophy, translators, book lovers, and others.
Komunitas Salihara can be called an alternative cultural center: it is not owned by the central government, regional government, or a foreign embassy. The vision of Komunitas Salihara is to maintain freedom of thought and expression, respect differences and diversity, and to foster and spread artistic and intellectual resources.
