Dutch govt supports arts, culture conservation in Indonesia

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Dutch government had promised to continue its financial support to the conservation of arts and culture in Indonesia, and also hold human resources training, under a cooperation between Amsterdam`s Tropenmuseum and the Jakarta Culture and Arts Agency.

Netherlands Ambassador to Indonesia Nikolaos van Dam said at the opening of a "Hidden Inheritance Exhibition at Jakarta`s Museums" at Erasmus Huis on Friday, his country considered arts and culture as a vital part of the life of people, not only because of the external effects of arts like beautifying the environment, but also as a boost to the economy and tourism, as well as an enhancement to a country`s image and reputation.

"Therefore the Dutch government since a long time ago deemed it necessary and important to support and finance the arts sector actively. Not only in the Netherlands itself, but in other countries like Indonesia which has a friendly relationship with the Netherlands as well," he said. 

Nikolaos said arts and culture have high intrinsic values to life itself, provide a purpose for the people and a hope for a better future.

He said that one of the cooperations that had been established for some time between Indonesia and the Netherlands is a cooperation between Tropenmuseum of Amsterdam and the Jakarta Culture and Museum Agency with the support of the Netherlands Embassy and assistance of the Rotterdam City Administration. 

"The project which was launched in 2006, and to last until next year, not only improved the management of exhibitions and museum care and maintenance in Jakarta in an active way, but the exhibition we have opened opened today also has concrete results," he said. 

The museums under the management of the Jakarta City Administration taking part in the exhibition are Maritime Museum, 1945 Independence Struggle Museum, Husni Thamrin Museum, National Monumen, Onrust Island Archaeological Park, Museum of Jakarta History, Epigraphical Museum, Fine Arts and Ceramics Museum, Textile Museum, and Leather Puppet Museum. 

Under this project, all the museums in Jakarta will be holding their own exhibitions in the next couple of months. 

Early in 2009, a group of promising young museum and conservation agency executives will be leaving for the Netherlands where they will follow special training to enhance their capabilities, and visit museums under the sponsorship of Tropenmuseum.
