Galur Subdistrict is an area that has abundant art and tradition potential and is in great demand
by its people. Unfortunately, the art performances and traditions that are carried out only aim merely
to continue what have been done through generations. On the other hand, the influx of modern
arts has become a threat to preserving traditional culture, especially among young people who are
supposed to be the guardians of the traditions. Tis encourages Javanese Literature Study Program
to carry out a community service program consisting of a series of training program as the Study
Program’s concern and real action for cultural preservation.

The training program is carried out through mentoring in motivating, counseling, education,
discussion, and consultation. By using such mentoring techniques, it is expected that the result of the
program will be optimum, namely raising public awareness to increase language literacy, knowledge
of literature, and the knowledge of the art performances they have. In turn, they will be able to
manage the performances as a professional art performance organizer in the region.

The outcomes of the community service program comprise the increasing ability of participants in
reading and writing simple texts using Javanese alphabet, participants’ ability to compose macapat
songs and sing them, the participants’ ability to write Javanese poems with the rinengga language,
the participants’ ability create a series of dances and nursery rhymes to be performed, and the
participants’ ability to become masters of ceremonies. In addition, three versions of Folklore about
K.R.T Kertinegara are also collected
