TOBUCIL Creativity and Literacy Club
Text and picture by Eki Qushay Akhwan
I came across this curious piece of paper-folding craft entitled "Lafafa Space" at the TOBUCIL tent at BANDUNG KICKFEST 2008, an event which was held as part of the HELAR Fest (Bandung's annual event for creative industry communities).
Tobucil which stands for Toko Buku Kecil (Small Book Store) is not an ordinary book store. It is not just a place that sells books but also a literacy and creativity club. According to its blog (in Indonesian language), this book store has philosophy club, reading club, writing club, and different kinds of handicraft clubs.
I've heard about this place for sometime but have not really got the chance to visit it. I think I'll have to do it soon, so that I can tell you more about it. For now, perhaps you could read this review at The Jakarta Post (Indonesia's largest English newspaper).
