Project Characteristics and Results
Policy Influence
1. The impact of policies that can be observed directly from the project is the design of a policy change in the level of internal OAT which the organization committee started to have a plan to establish the rules of production quality weaving loom group that can be accepted by OAT to be distributed to the consumer outside. In addition, OAT also try to build agreement on the working time of completion of weaving that the weavers become more disciplined in weaving craftsmanship. This deal still consider planting season schedule in each area so it will not interfere with agricultural productivity by the weavers. 2. Training conducted by the facilitator on the first visit in eight (8) points in Amanatun weaving group, Amanuban and Molo have opened up insights into the variety of products that can be made from raw material weaving to the group. However, in order to keep developing creativity, these groups still need assistance and support of OAT. So far, we considered that the support and assistance which is carried out by OAT against groups of weaving is still very minimum. Based on our findings in the field, the lack of performance of the OAT due to the internal situation and the lack of technical support for staff who are responsible for coaching OAT weaving. 3. Excavation story carried by fasiliator many find interesting local narrative narrative about changes in the production process of weaving. Changes in the production process of weaving can not be separated from climate factors, support the ecology and tastes of the market. The loss of the basic material weaving plants (cotton) and some natural dye plants occur due to changes in cropping patterns. Alternation of color taste that is a result of market tastes. 3. In the field visits, the team found that in fact there are individual people who do weaving with natural processes. Only the support and the environmental situation is not enough to make them feel they have other benefits besides just holding the tradition.
Project sustainability
1. The potential sustainability of this project is enormous since OAT has woven a network group that has good potential. The weaving groups feel a real benefit to the training content of this project, especially in product pengkreasian weaving and weaving of their distribution systems. However, so far we identify potential problems that could hamper the sustainability of the project, especially from OAT to design and establish production flow weaving structured and well-established. Therefore, we see the need to support and accompany OAT to be an umbrella organization that coordinates the weavers. 2. Results and visual narrative of these activities can be discussed with the general public to provide a snapshot of information about the need to create good ecological weaving activities that keep going and growing. Furthermore, the findings of the research and activities in this project can be presented and discussed in villages, especially in those who visit. Besides, for the purpose of verification of the data, it needs to be done so that the weavers who assisted in this project really feel that they are 'empowered' and that they can become important actors in the society by developing weaving. If this can be achieved, the weavers will have a sense of ownership or a sense of belonging that is because they feel an important part in this program so that they would be more enthusiasm and are keen to continue the program or innovations introduced by this project as something that continues. 3. For the next step can be taken to support the sustainability of the project is to open a broader relationship to the regional department of culture (especially the museum NTT) to introduce and read this issue seriously weaving based on the results of this study or project.
