Awareness of digital content creators about the importance of preserving our culture is crucial
JAKARTA (ANTARA) – The Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology is collaborating with South Korea’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to develop the Rumah Indonesiana (Indonesian House) project.
The Rumah Indonesiana project aims to develop digital content creation skills and will later include a creative incubation center for content creators incorporating local wisdom.
„With the opportunity to cooperate with South Korea, we share with each other in technical capacity development, and Koreans can also learn more about Indonesian culture,” said Fitra Arda, secretary of the ministry’s Culture Directorate.
The high capacity of national content creators, combined with Indonesian culture as a source of content, will become an invaluable asset, he pointed out.
Therefore, the government is partnering with South Korea to develop technological capacity, particularly exploring the potential of culturally relevant digital content, he said.
Under the joint initiative concept, Indonesia has proposed six locations for piloting the project – Jakarta, Sikka District, Jambi, Makassar, Bali and Cirebon, he explained.
He informed that the National Awareness Museum in Central Jakarta will serve as the pilot project location in Jakarta.
In Sikka, East Nusa Tenggara, regional government facilities will be used for the Rumah Indonesia project, Arda said.
The head of the Sikka Culture and Tourism Office, Petrus Poling Wairmahing, assured that the administration is ready to support the project, considering that many creative youths face problems in terms of access and support facilities.
„We are committed to making the Ruma Indonesia project a success, and we are proud that the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology trusts Sikka District as one of the starting points for Ruma Indonesia,” he said.
Meanwhile, content creator and cultural activist Frans Cornelis Dian Bunda said he expects the project to serve as a public space widely accessible to the public, thereby becoming a community hub.
Regional government participation is essential for cultural development efforts, especially those driven by youth, he said.
The program is expected to help local content creators improve their content quality, expand their network to collaborate with others, he said.
„The most important thing is the awareness of digital content creators about the importance of maintaining our culture,” he added.
