Cultural Performance Marks TBI Indonesia’s New Office Opening

Until now, TBI Indonesia occupied two offices - in Balikpapan and in FORDA building, Bogor. In June 2014, TBI moved to Jl. A. Yani, Bogor. A traditional Javanese “Wayang Kulit” performance enlivened the opening of Tropenbos International Indonesia’s new office on Friday, 19 September 2014. The performance presented a story titled “Sumilaking Pedhut Wirata” or “The Vanishing Fog of Wirata”, a part of the popular epic of Mahabharata. The performance was special because the dalang (the storyteller) was not a professional artist, but Dr. Edi Purwanto, the Program Director of TBI Indonesia. Dr. Purwanto said that combining culture and forest management is viewed as something crucial at landscape level.
