Bersama Project (The Together Project)

  1. 1. Bersama Project An Indonesian foundation to confront violence against women and achieve gender equality through music and the arts
  2. 2. Women and Girls in Indonesia Gender inequality and violence against women are endemic. Most women will experience discrimination, exploitation, harassment, or violence in their lifetimes. In the home, workplace, streets, classroom, and her own body, women face daily challenges to their safety, security, and dignity.
  3. 3. Threats to equality In the Home: Nearly 300,000 cases of violence against women were reported in 2014, 70% of which were domestic abuse cases. Legalized polygamy and patriarchal inheritance customs compound gender equality in the home (KOMNAS Perempuan, 2014). In the Workplace: Indonesian women earn 79% of the average hourly wage of men, and the wage gap for monthly salaried workers is even higher (ILO, 2013). Gender-based job segregation tends to trap women in low-level jobs, and workplace regulations fail to protect women from labor exploitation and verbal, physical, or sexual harrassment. On the Streets: Regulations to “protect” women from sexual assault in public places (e.g., “women only” train cars and curfews or restrictions on nighttime employment), are not preventive and limit women’s freedoms. Underdeveloped sexual assault laws restrict rape victims’ ability to seek justice, and lack of knowledge on rape is displayed at the judicial system’s highest level. In the Classroom: Girls compose 60-70% of all withdrawals in primary and senior high school. Pressures to marry, have children, and work to provide for the family are primary reasons why girls do not continue their education (Ministry of Education, 2011). Gender-biased textbooks and students’ selection of specializations at vocational schools and universities reinforce gender stereotypes. In the Body: Advertising and the entertainment industry reinforce unrealistic beauty standards, and practices such as female genital mutilation remain customary in many regions of the country. Indonesia’s anti-pornography law, virginity tests, and more than 150 regional bylaws unfairly target women and demonstrate that sexual and bodily autonomy are not yet possible (KOMNAS Perempuan, 2012).
  4. 4. Every human society cultivates music and the arts. These vital components of human social life often direct collective attention toward shared problems and potential solutions. They educate as they entertain, inspire emotional response and empathy, and have the potential to reach large audiences with a clear and repetitive call to action. A creative intervention aims the methods of activism and communicative media of music and the arts toward pragmatic end and humanitarian benefit. It is time for a Creative Intervention
  5. 5. Bersama Project is an Indonesian foundation dedicated to creative advocacy to confront violence against women and promote gender equality through music & the arts.
  6. 6. What we do Bersama Project builds public awareness about gender inequality and gender-based violence through performances, exhibitions, workshops, documentaries, and social media campaigns. “We are tough. There isn’t anything that happens instantly for us. It all needs a process.” — Yacko Oktaviana, hip hop artist and INTI College Marketing Professor, Bersama Project Partner
  7. 7. How we do it Bersama Project influences the influencers. We support Indonesian musicians and artists—many of whom have encountered gender inequality in their creative professions or survived gender-based violence—to advocate for gender equality and an end to gender-based violence through their creative platforms. We provide opportunities for dialogue and collaboration between Violence Against Women (VAW) and gender equality scholars, activists, and NGOs and professionals within the creative industries, such as musicians, artists, songwriters, concert promoters, art curators, and record label executives. “To use art as activism is to create a bridge between the message and the people.” – Kartika Jahja, Bersama Project Director, VAW advocate, Tika and the Dissidents frontwoman
  8. 8. What we want to achieve Bersama Project supports equality and an end to gender-based violence through music and the arts. We are committed to a creative intervention on the social, economic, political, educational, and labor inequities that impact us all. We aim to achieve measureable outcomes in equality perspectives through a commitment between women and men and for a collective paradigm shift. Our immediate objective is capacity-building for Indonesian musicians and artists to support gender equality by staging a creative intervention. Our long- term objective is a sustainable creative collective that will accelerate the cultural paradigm shift toward true gender equality in Indonesia. “We do not agree with any law that controls the bodies of women. We express our restlessness through music.” — Teraya Paramehta, Wonderbra frontwoman, University of Indonesia English professor, Bersama Project Partner

  10. 10. Artist Partners Bersama Project works together with the creative trendsetters of Indonesia to achieve our goals. Artist partners are selected for frontline Bersama Project campaigns according to three rigorous criteria and in order to provide diverse opportunities for dialogue and debate across a range of creative media: 1. Knowledge on the importance of gender equality issues and/or willingness to take part in capacity-building activities. 2. Creative capacity, including technical proficiency and creative output within their artistic mediums and capacity to effectively convey a clear and relevant call to action through Bersama Project campaigns. 3. Popularity and notoriety among fans, critics, academics, and the media, as well as outreach capacity via public programs such as concerts, exhibitions, university talks, and social, print, and broadcast media engagement. “Art education is a public intervention that has a huge impact on society.” — Ika Vantiani, Visual Artist, Curator, Bersama Project Partner
  11. 11. Roundtable Discussion: A Creative Intervention for Gender Equality On 2 July 2015, Bersama Project held “Intervensi Kreatif untuk Kesetaraan Gender,” (Creative Intervention for Gender Equality), a roundtable discussion attended by musicians, visual artists, journalists, bloggers, development professionals, and academics. The aim of the roundtable was to open a discussion on the current state of gender relations—both within creative industries and Indonesian society—and the potential for music and the arts to achieve gender equality.
  12. 12. Roundtable Conclusions Discussion between roundtable participants and audience questions and comments illuminated the following conclusions: 1. The cultural, economic, and political causes of gender equality have not been sufficiently addressed through governmental regulations or developmental initiatives. 2. Music and the arts are potentially powerful media for addressing these issues and achieving a cultural paradigm shift. 3. Women and men must take part in the artistic dialogue, in order to achieve measurable results. 4. A creative intervention requires clear objectives and comprehensive capacity-building for artists.
  13. 13. Project Launch: #1Voice4Women As our official launch and first campaign, Bersama Project produced four live music videos and interviews with woman-fronted bands in Jakarta.
