Ketemu Jalan Jalan has been part of our team culture, to reach out to other social organizations in Bali and to see in what ways art can impact their communities. Aligned with The Creability Movement, we have been meeting organizations that support disabled communities. This month we have visited Yayasan Cahaya Mutiara in Ubud. Their main focus is to the build confidence of people with disabilities. Their members have numerous achievements in sports, such as in sporting events for weightlifting and rugby. Accessibility has become the main concern for them in terms of their daily life outside the dorm. They hope for the local government to consider how public spaces can be made more accessible by providing ramps, accessible toilets, education, and job opportunities.

They produce art and craft goods for their organization’s sustainability.
