‘Collaborative Approaches to Capacity Building in Indonesian Maritime Archaeology’ is a collaborative project between the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre at the University of Sydney, the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, Universitas Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa (Serang), Universitas Indonesia (Jakarta), Universitas Hasanuddin (Makassar) and Universitas Gadjah Mada (Yogyakarta), supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Indonesia Institute of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
This project demonstrates Australia’s commitment to working together with Indonesia to manage shared heritage, and builds on activities funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Maritime Capacity Building Initiative focusing on HMAS Perth (I). By prioritising tertiary students, this project seeks to engage with the next generation of Indonesian maritime heritage practitioners and archaeologists, thereby creating new and sustainable pathways for collaboration and engagement between the two countries.
