Pre-Conference Project (PPK)

The Pre-Conference Project (PPK) is a village-themed projects prior to the implementation of ICVR as an attempt to test, realize the ideas, thoughts and concepts of Village Revitalization located in rural areas and elsewhere, both home and abroad. A number of good PPKs are expected to be real activities that continue even after the ICVR ends. In ICVR#3, PPK will consist of the revitalization project of Ngadidono and Ngadiprono Hamlets areas.

PPK Ngadiprono-Ngadidono is a continuation of the Pasar Papringan Market which later turned out to have the potential to be a locomotive of change in the two sub-villages. Meanwhile, PPK International is planned to be held in two countries, namely developed/industrial countries and developing countries, where the two are interconnected. Through this project, it is expected to obtain a model of Village Revitalization program where both developed and developing countries able to enter the Post-Industrial Era simultaneously.

Pre-Conference Project (PPK) Ngadiprono-Ngadidono

Tambujatra is an acronym of the Taman Bambu Jalan Trasah (Garden Bamboo Stone Path), a name that represents activities that combine the beauty of bamboo gardens and stone paths. The beauty of bamboo garden landscape design Papringan market has become a magnet outside the market itself. Tambujatra is expected to become a new public space through the cultivation of a good collaborative landscape design.

The initiation of the Papringan Market and the planned ICVR#3 in Ngadiprono sparked the idea of providing lodging facilities (home stay). Home stay development is expected to be one of the ways to improve the quality of shelter and environment of local communities, as well as the aspects of socio-cultural life, environment, customs, architecture, village spatial planning, and so on.

The community of Ngadidono Hamlet, a neighboring hamlet which directly adjacent to Ngadiprono Hamlet has proven a potential of good art. Starting from these potentials, we initiated a scheduled local-based, internationally-qualified dancing art performance to attract visitors from outside the village, even from out of town into Ngadidono Hamlet.
