Hone Your Creativity at the Wayang Youth Festival 2021 Competition!

You must be familiar with wayang puppetry. This art tradition is known for its entertainment through allegorical tales it conveys to the spectators. It should come as no surprise, then, that wayang has been recognized by UNESCO as Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on 7 November 2003. In 2018, the government declared November 7 as National Wayang Day.

Realizing the significance of wayang for the Indonesian people and to mark the National Wayang Day, BCA, through the Bakti Budaya program, supports the development of wayang by holding the Wayang Youth Festival 2021.

For those who do not know, the Wayang Youth Festival 2021 is a collaboration between BCA, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology, and Sampan Bujana to ensure our future generations will take a greater interest in the Indonesian cultures.
