The Yogyakarta Cultural Development Center (TBY) will again stage traditional art performances, as they seek to transmit the spirit of togetherness from the art players to the community, according to TBY Chief Diah Tutuko Suryandaru.

"The art performances are expected to raise the spirit of togetherness among the people to maintain and preserve their culture, arts, and tradition," Diah said here on Saturday.

According to Diah, traditional art is an effective means to strengthen inner bonds between communities to help them remain united.

Diah noted that the spirit of togetherness is an important resource for the people of Yogyakarta, allowing them to remain ready to respond to possible natural disasters.

"The art performances will be staged in the final week of every month this year ," she said.
