Be instantly awed by the indescribable beauty of Borneo’s Dayak tribe art and culture exhibited during the Dayak Arts and Cultural Exhibition (DANCE) 2022, initiated by John Hardy from May 20th to July 30th, 2022 at the John Hardy Boutique & Gallery at Seminyak, Bali.
Dive in Kalimantan’s cultural journey presented by a group of young Dayak who were born and raised in the exotic island. Gain the exceptional experience of understanding the relationship between community, culture and nature that are dynamically evolving while also vulnerable and fragile at the same time.
Through the artworks curated by HANDEP’s team of Dayak curators, designers and artisans, everyone is able to witness how the next generation of young Indonesians work together developing models of sustainability and transparency, in the way they work and engage with their own community.
HANDEP was born as a response towards the effect of rapid globalization, the exponential development of the extractive industry, deforestation, eviction of Indigenious people from their ancestral lands, a decline in sustainable forest-based products, and the loss of traditional practices.
Initiated by Randi Julian Miranda—a proud Dayak himself, HANDEP is the vehicle for him to take action, help his fellow Dayak people to reconnect to their rich land and forest, to enable them to sustain their local resources while adding values and growing together as a community.
Through their products, services, and way of working, HANDEP aims to support village communities and preserve the rainforests, while fostering a real human connection between the makers and consumers. HANDEP currently supports more than 400 Indigenous artisans and smallholders in 11 villages in Kalimantan, Banten, and Northern Bali.
Join the hand weaving workshops where you will be guided by the weaving master coming from the very heart of Borneo. Also do not miss the Talk Series with interesting topics such as The Face of Extractive Industries in Kalimantan, Working with Indigenious Communities, and Sustainable Supply Chain.
