On this day in 2008, Komunitas Salihara was officially opened as an arts center in southern Jakarta. It’s the first privately-funded multidisciplinary arts center in Indonesia. It was established by a number of writers, artists, journalists, and art lovers, as a new incarnation of Komunitas Utan Kayu; a small arts collective which was started in 1996 and was active both as an arts enclave and a centre for resistance during the last years of the New Order era..

About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
