Kampung Halaman Foundation is a non-profit organisation established in 2006 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, that focuses on strengthening the critical thinking and role of youth in their respective communities through the use of community-based arts media and collaborative processes. Its mission is to expand and strengthen the support system for Indonesian youth - starting with families, schools and the government, which fully believes in the strength and potential in a participatory and collaborative way of Indonesian youth.
Kampung Halaman's core programmes are:
- Production of learning tools:
Developing context-specific learning media for youth in their neighbourhood, such as video diaries, community films, music, narrative photographs, writings, drawings/paintings, comics, wanted posters, village mapping, etc. The use of media becomes a space for the young people to critically question their surroundings.
- Creation and strengthening of the Community Lab:
Organising youth groups in transitional regions through social research, production and dissemination of learning media, building regional foundations through collaborative use of technology in partnership with experts from different fields of academia.
Youth in different parts of Indonesia are invited to understand the world around them and the world in general through their own experiences. They are invited to read, understand, analyse and express this in various forms of literacy campaign media. Starting with films, music, writing and social media dealing with various social issues based on direct experiences.
