Hendra Permana (Bada)

Multatuli Museum, Banten

Bada graduated from the History Department of Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta in 2017. Since 2018, he has been working as a curator at the Multatuli Museum- a new museum that opened in 2018 which carries the theme of anti-colonialism. Bada has been involved in the preparation of a festival called the Multatuli Arts Festival (FSM) which featured a series of events to introduce the public to Multatuli and the museum itself. At this festival, Bada specifically designed an exhibition on coffee in collaboration with Erasmus Huis. Currently, Bada is also an active member of the Banten Girang Laboratory, a community that aims to popularize the importance of the Banten Girang Site, which existed before the Sultanate of Banten. He is also currently starting a public library called Humaliterasi (, which has the goal of documenting oral traditions, culture, and history in the Lebak Regency.
