Betawipedia is an organization that is concerned with the development of the arts and culture of Indonesian society, especially Betawi. The mixture of cultures in the land of Betawi is a small picture of the cultural diversity of the archipelago. The work of this organization began with developing literacy about the culture and social life of the Betawi community, on our website: www.betawipedia.com
Betawipedia est since June 22 2020.
Betawi is a land of acculturation. The dynamics of its development always follow the flow of the times and are interrelated with one another, because "kebetawian" is a construction not an essence. For this reason, Betawipedia documents the growth of Betawi which is influenced by various cultures.
