First and Foremost

  •  Why is it called Salihara? 

We adopted the name of the street on which our complex is located, Jalan Salihara, to make the complex easier to find and to merge with the surrounding environment.  “Salihara” itself originates from the name of a multi-blossom flower, the Saliara flower or Lantana camara L.  As it has multiple blossoms it suits our vision of pluralism and the spread of artistic and intellectual resources, so that we also took the image of this flower as the basis for our logo.

  •  Is Komunitas Saliohara an exclusive group?

No.  Although we use the word “komunitas” as the name, Komunitas Salihara actually refers to the art center complex, not an association or group that has specific members.  The word “komunitas” as we mean it, is more about the ties between whoever supports and participates in the arts activities and ideas that we hold at this arts center.  In this way, anyone can join in and become part of Komunitas Salihara.

  •  Is Komunitas Salihara open every day?
