Policy in Indonesia


In Indonesia, MAP aims to influence the national curricula and youth policy from the bottom up. Starting from local Urban Level meetings all the way to national level decision making processes. This is being done in collaboration with the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection, and the Ministry of Education. MAP Indonesia strives to create a network of committed local CSOs, national NGOs, youth researchers and cultural artists all working towards improving the situation for young people in Indonesia especially connected to street violence (brawling) and gender based violence.

From 2020-21, MAP Co-Investigator Harla Sara Octarra and her team from Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia worked conducted baseline activities including training in the use of arts-based methods for peacebuilding.


In 2023 the Beyond Tradition and GENPEACE projects will be engaging in arts-driven advocacy events, as well as producing Policy Briefs. Watch this space!
