The Creative Communities program has been working intensively with community groups to identify local developmental issues and to channel the aspirations of poor and marginalized people using creative mediums. Through participating in theatre for development, the community group in Bajoe village, Bone district, South Sulawesi has devised a play about the daily challenges of village life, especially those faced by the Bajo people (also known as sea gypsies). The actors of the play are villagers including from the Bajo community and PNPM-Rural facilitators. The theatre performance incorporated traditional Bajo dance, music and martial arts which are very rarely performed in the region. More than 500 people turned up to watch the performance which was held on June 28 and 29, 2013 in Bajoe village and Watampone town respectively. Creative Communities supports the National Program for Community Empowerment (PNPM-Mandiri) by using creative expressions and community-based cultural activities to strengthen public participation and give voice to poor and marginalized people.
