Ondel-Ondel Workshop: Celebrating Jakarta's Anniversary with an Eco-Friendly Twist

As Jakarta celebrated its anniversary, an innovative and eco-friendly event took place at Hutan Kota by Plataran. The Ondel-Ondel Workshop offered children the opportunity to craft their very own Ondel-Ondel miniatures using recycled materials. Not only did this event promote creativity and cultural appreciation, but it also instilled a sense of environmental responsibility among the young participants.

Embracing Tradition and Sustainability

Ondel-Ondel, the giant puppet figure synonymous with Jakarta's cultural heritage, became the focal point of the workshop. Children gathered at Hutan Kota by Plataran, an urban park known for its green spaces and eco-conscious initiatives, to learn about the significance of Ondel-Ondel and its role in Jakarta's history. However, what made this workshop truly special was the emphasis on sustainability. By utilizing recycled materials, the children were encouraged to express their creativity while minimizing their impact on the environment.

Crafting Ondel-Ondel Miniatures

Under the guidance of skilled artisans, the young participants eagerly immersed themselves in the art of creating Ondel-Ondel miniatures. Armed with recycled materials such as cardboard, paper, and discarded fabrics, they transformed these seemingly mundane items into colorful and intricate representations of Jakarta's iconic puppet figures. From cutting and shaping the materials to adding vibrant hues and intricate details, the children were able to unleash their imagination and create unique masterpieces.

Eco-Friendly Fun

The workshop not only provided an engaging hands-on experience but also fostered a sense of eco-consciousness among the children. Through interactive sessions and discussions, they learned about the importance of recycling and upcycling in reducing waste and preserving the environment. By actively participating in this eco-friendly celebration, the children gained a deeper appreciation for Jakarta's rich cultural heritage while understanding the significance of sustainable practices.

Celebrating Jakarta's Anniversary

As the workshop coincided with Jakarta's anniversary, the children found a unique way to express their love for their city. By celebrating with Ondel-Ondel miniatures made from recycled materials, they showcased their commitment to honoring tradition and preserving the environment. The joy and excitement radiating from the young participants exemplified the spirit of Jakarta's anniversary celebration, which was marked not only by festivities but also by a collective commitment toward a greener future.

Ondel-Ondel Workshop at Hutan Kota by Plataran provided a remarkable platform for children to celebrate Jakarta's anniversary in an eco-friendly way.
