This is the first virtual exhibition in Aceh, Indonesia’s westernmost province
The Dream Village Library Exhibition as a routine agenda of Peace Volunteer Centre (3R) to show a variety of extraordinary works of children from remote villages in Aceh has been held every year. Unfortunately, the condition of the pandemic made the activities that usually bring the children of the village to the city of Banda Aceh finally held online through the Virtual Exhibition of Dream Village Library.
The Virtual Exhibition which was held on 4-5 July 2020 was carried out with 3 objectives; to appreciate the work of village children through virtual presentations, educating the public about remote village education and forming partnerships with other communities to advance public education.
There are 3 types of activities during this Virtual Exhibition. First, the exhibition of village children’s work in the form of writing, drawing, anthology and crafts which can be seen through https://www.artsteps.com/view/5eddf8918c21391a5a525c5f and broadcast live through Instagram 3R (@rumahrelawanremaja) dan 3R Youtube Channel. Secondly, the webinar activity with the theme of Remote Village Education through the Zoom application invited several presenters aside from the Dream Village Library team such as the Head of the Aceh Provincial Education Office, the Founder of the Sokola Institute and the Special Staff of the President of the Republic of Indonesia. Third, a series of competitions in the form of photography, storytelling, poetry reading and story writing are currently entering the judging stage.
The Virtual Exhibition of the Dream Village Library was passionately prepared by volunteers at the 3R secretariat in Peukan Bada. The decoration with the nuances of the villages where the Dream Village Library is held is also an important part of this exhibition. Of course, everything was seen in the live broadcast which was held on July 4, 2020 through Instagram.
The first Virtual Exhibition showing the works of this village was carried out smoothly. Many were actively involved in live Instagram broadcasts, took part in webinars and watched exhibitions through artstep.com.
May we continue to take part in appreciating the work of children and villagers!
