Kolase Bercerita

This Virtual Exhibition entitled Kolase Bercerita (digital storytelling collage) 2021 is one of the outcomes of the digital collage workshop held by Mobile Arts for Peace (MAP) in Indonesia, made through the collaboration of Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia, with visual artist facilitator, Vina Puspita, and the DKI Jakarta Child Protection Agency (LPA). The virtual exhibition consists of the sub-themes ‘myself’, ‘my environment’, and ‘my hope’. These sub-themes and the art form of Collage were chosen by the MAP participants to voice their opinions, reflections, and hopes.

All the works on display were created by young people aged 12–19 years old in Jakarta who are affiliated with 7 organisations, namely Cipinang Besar Selatan Children’s Forum, Cipinang Besar Utara Children’s Forum, Budi Mulia Pademangan Barat Children’s Forum, Red Nose Foundation, Bandungwangi Foundation, Wahana Visi Indonesia (WVI) Urban Jakarta, and Bina Matahari Bangsa Foundation.

MAP participants went through a series of creative and problem identification workshops, both as individuals and groups, to finally produce the works that are part of this exhibition. It is hoped that these processes and works will lead to further dialogue about young people, the environment, and hope for better conditions.
