“Schizofriends Art Movement” is dedicated to realizing the capacity of each person living with schizophrenia to be an active and creative being.

This initiative seeks to produce a dynamic experience for participants, with the goal of supporting psycho-social rehabilitation for people with mental disabilities and psycho-education for the public.
Established by Ketemu’s artist, Budi Agung Kuswara (Kabul), this initiative harnesses both open-ended tasks and designed experiences as a form of collective empowerment, that is both critical and therapeutic. The movement first begun as a collaboration between Kabul and psychiatrist Dr Gst Rai Putra Wiguna sp.KJ,  kickedstarted by a seed grant from the Mabesikan: Art for Social Change Project initiated by Search for Common Ground. Through a series of creative workshops held at Ketemu Project Space people with the condition from Bali were provided opportunities for expression and activities for them to develop a more vital relationship with reality. The workshops also enabled the community vocationally by providing skills for them to work and live more independently. After a series of public campaigns, Rumah Berdaya, a psychosocial rehabilitation centre was founded in 2016 with the support of the local government. This flagship creative space for people living with schizophrenia is now independently run by a team of psychiatrists and the members of Komunitas Peduli Skizofrenia Indonesia (KPSI) Bali.
