sanggar, art studio, culture conservation, sustainable development goal


Art is an outward manifestation of a culture. An art studio, or “sanggar,” plays a crucial role in archiving work, serving as a platform to showcase artists and their creations. Effective management of a sanggar can ensure the preservation of creative works and potentially stimulate economic growth. This qualitative study uses direct interviews and participant observation to collect data. The analysis was conducted using Miles and Huberman’s approach, and the results were explained descriptively. The study aims to understand how a sanggar functions as a centre for preserving traditional arts. The findings suggest that the existence of Pendopo Agung Ronggo Hadinegoro contributes to local art conservation efforts by providing resources to local artists, managing art performances, promoting local art to both foreign and domestic tourists, and participating in art competitions on a national and international scale. These activities not only promote local arts but also enhance the value of local culture, preserve cultural traditions, and potentially boost the local artists’ creative industry.
