Pillars of Arts and Culture

Art and culture

Culture is a knowledge system that includes a system of ideas or ideas contained in the human mind. Cultural embodiments are objects created by humans as cultured beings, in the form of behavior and objects that are real, such as patterns of behavior, language, tools of life, social organizations, religion, art, and so on, which aim to help humans in social life. Culture is the embodiment of human responses to the challenges faced in the process of adjusting to the environment.


1.Cultural Conservation

  • Religious Culture

Indonesian national culture is an accumulation of traditional culture in Indonesia. In the daily life practices of UNNES residents, there are several national cultures that are preserved by UNNES residents. These cultures include (1) mutual cooperation, (2) deliberation, and (3) solidarity. These three cultures have become important cultures known as the national identity of the Indonesian people.

  • Traditional Clothing and Fashion Shows

The use of traditional clothing is a form of cultural conservation. This has become an integral part of UNNES, such as the use of batik on certain days. This has become a habit as well as conservation of the culture and work of the nation’s children.

2.Art Conservation

  • Art Conservation and the Urgency of Art Conservation

According to the Asia-Pacific Cultural Center for UNESCO (ACCU) report, there are several types of art conditions that must be conserved:

  1. Art must have an exceptional and extraordinary human creative value
  2. Art that is unique and exceptional and contributes to history and cultural traditions
  3. It has the potential to disappear because: the number of practitioners begins to decrease, historical authenticity begins to disappear, cultural significance begins to disappear and art is lost due to the threat of modern rules and regulations.

According to UNESCO, art conservation is an attempt to slow down or prevent the death of certain arts. Traditional arts passed down from one generation to another can be cut off and die. UNNES’s obligation is to prevent the death of a traditional art by making a conscious effort to document and teach traditional art to the next generation.

  • Mechanisms and Limitations of Art Conservation conducted by UNNES

To limit the types of art that are conserved, UNNES focuses on conserving four types of works of art:

  1. Traditional dance art

  7. Build infrastructure and procure tools that contribute to maintaining traditional arts
  8. Ensuring the existence of students who write theses, theses, dissertations and other scientific works on traditional arts
  9. Increase the volume of international publications related to traditional arts
