Hello #Friends of Sonobudoyo, Happy 94th Youth Pledge Day in 2022!
On this 2022 Youth Pledge Day, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has the theme "United to Build the Nation". With this theme, it is hoped that it can be an inspiration for the young generation of Indonesia today to always Unite Build the Nation to bring the Indonesian nation to a better direction.
But did you know, before the Youth Pledge was held on October 28, 1928, 10 years earlier a Cultural Congress had been held?
The Cultural Congress was held in Surakarta in 1918. According to Prof. Rudolf Mrazek is like a cultural manifestation, this congress is a renaissance of Javanese language and culture that paved the way for Indonesian nationalism.
This Cultural Congress was recorded as having 15 meetings with different objectives, themes and agreements. Through this Cultural Congress, we know where the direction of Indonesian culture is coming from, and from the outskirts of Surakarta, this nation has begun to knit its culture.
The collection is one of the photo collections of the Java Instituut Congress in Bali in 1937 belonging to the Sonobudoyo Museum. The congress had discussions related to "Culture and History" regarding the life of the Balinese people.
Greetings Museum Friends, Museum in My Heart!
