The first exhibition ever held by TERARTAI showcasing artworks created by our gifted artists (a community with special needs). 

 

TERARTAI is a social enterprise that works together with gifted artists by co-creating arts and turning them into meaningful souvenirs, and gifts. Today, we are working together with Yayasan Kyriakon Mission to help pave way for their students’ vocational opportunities. 


Stories of the braves is an exhibition showcasing artworks created by our gifted artists. Each artwork tells our artists’ story about courage, hope, and what it means for them to be brave.

We hope that Stories of the braves can be an inspiration for many to have the courage to try, to take that leap, whilst raising the awareness about the courage and resilience of communities with special needs.

Brave is not about not having fear, but finding a way through it despite of our fears.

Shooting stars lighting the sky by Daniel Gunawan

Daniel Gunawan_edited.jpg

Jujur itu sulit. Berani apalagi.

Ketika kita jujur dalam hidup ini, tidak selalu disukai orang.

Keberanian adalah lompatan kita untuk dapat jujur dalam hidup ini lompatan yang ketika kita lakukan bersinar terang seperti “shooting stars”.


- By Daniel Gunawan

It’s hard to be honest. It’s even harder to be brave.
When we’re honest about ourselves we risk ourselves from being disliked by others. 

But courage allows us to take a leap of faith to be honest about ourselves. When we take that leap we will shine bright just like the shooting stars.

The northern lights by Jeffry Oentoro

Daniel Gunawan_edited.jpg

Jangan Takut Akan Gelap, Karena Tanpanya, Kita Tidak Akan Mengerti Cahaya ataupun Terang. Aurora Borealis seperti titik terang dalam sebuah kesulitan. Aurora Borealis harus dilihat pada malam yang sangat gelap, banyak orang takut akan gelap, tetapi pasti ada keindahan tertentu yang hanya dapat dilihat dalam gelap.


- By Jeffry Oentoro

Don’t be afraid of the dark because without it we can’t understand light. The northern light captures the light at the end of the tunnel. Such light can only be seen at the darkest night. Many people are afraid of the dark, but they forget that there are certain beauty or learnings that we can only get in the dark.

Move forward even through struggles by Anthony Jim

Air dengan segala usahanya mengalir kebawah dan harus melwati rintangan seperti batu-batuan yang besar dan keras, namun air tetap berani mengalir, bahkan memberikan kehidupan untuk makhluk lain.

With all its might, water flows through the harshness of rocks, bringing life to the ecosystem around the stream. Just like water, we must dare to move forward even through our struggles.​

Ikan-ikan di Laut Es by Jeffry Oentoro

IMG_9129.heic

Aku melukiskan ikan-ikan yang kuat sehingga mereka bisa hidup di suhu yang sangat dingin. Ikan-ikan tersebut mempunyai keberanian untuk bisa hidup di laut yang dingin. Kitapun tidak boleh takut dingin, karena dingin bisa menyegarkan tubuh kita dan terus berani menerjang apapun yang terjadi di laut untuk bertahan.


- Jeffry Oentoro

I’m painting a picture of fish swimming in the frozen sea. The fish can survive at a very low temperature because they have the courage to survive in the cold. Like the fish we must not be afraid of the cold, because cold can be refreshing for our bodies, we also must be brave to face adversities to  survive.​

My family, My friends, 
Are the reasons why I’m here

My family, my home by Steffi Kurniawan

Steffi Kurniawan.jpeg

Bagiku, keberanian adalah rasa percaya diri untuk melakukan sesuatu hal tanpa rasa takut dan pantang menyerah. Keberanian mengingatkanku akan keluarga yg selalu memberi dukungan secara penuh. Aku ingin menggambarkan keluargaku dan rumahku.


- Steffi Kurniawan

To me, being brave is to have the confidence to do things in spite of fears, brave also means to never give up. Being brave reminds me of my family who always support me no matter what. I want to paint a picture of my family and my home.​

Aku suka sekali melihat bunga flamboyan dan gedung yang ada jembatannya di taman waduk Pluit. Bagiku, sebuah gedung melambangkan keberanian. Berani untuk berdiri tegak dan tetap teguh untuk menggapai cita cita kita yang setinggi langit.


- Jeffry Oentoro

I love to look at the flamboyant flowers and tall buildings around Pluit Reservoir. The tall buildings there remind me of great courage; to have the courage to stand tall to make our dreams a reality.​

Brave like eagles fly through and over the storm. Because believe God has provided wings that can overcome the storm and land safely.

The brave 
Storytellers

They are the courageous, the gifted artists. 

The special ones; the inspiration behind TERARTAI. 

 

They aspire to create, to be positive contributors, and to be seen beyond their disabilities. 

 

Most of them are non-verbal, but thank you to the support of their courageous families, caregivers, teachers, and therapists they are able to create and communicate and tell their stories using a communication board.
