Undang-undang Pemajuan Kebudayaan (The Law on Advancement of Culture) acknowledges and embraces Indonesia’s cultural diversity, positions the community as the owner and the driving force of the culture, and makes the culture as the guidelines for the national development.
The ten elements of culture which are the main focus of the Cultural Advancement
All cultural products and practices are a mix and combination of a community with different cultures.
Since culture is ever-changing over the time and will constantly develop, it requires efforts beyond its preservation.
One cultural element can contain more than one value or meaning.
Culture advancement means developing every element in the cultural ecosystem.
Advancing culture also means promoting other ecosystems beyond the cultural ecosystem.
The Law on Advancement of Culture is based on the cultural dynamics that are found in the community every day, from the most traditional culture to the most contemporary one, from the one that is on the brink of extinction to the one that continues to develop.
It talks about how we assimilate foreign cultures, process them into a new culture, and continue to develop them.
How we can continue to contribute to the world’s culture.
