YOGYAKARTA – VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS, BURIED TREASURE AND THE SEARCH FOR COMMUNITY RESILIENCE.

A year ago I travelled to Indonesia to attend a workshop on culture and disaster risk reduction. This is my story....Having flown half way around the world to share my research on how transformative learning impacts on adaptation and resilience towards disaster risk and make links with Indonesian researchers, I find myself staring at a clock. But the hands on the clock don’t move. Because they can’t. Ever. The clock I am looking at is a permanent record of a pyroclastic surge that enveloped the small settlement I am now standing in, following the eruption of Merapi volcano in 2010. The collection of everyday objects, known locally as Museum Sisa Hartaku (which translates as: ‘My remaining Treasure Museum’) were melted and twisted out of shape when burning hot clouds of ash and particulates as hot as 300 degrees Celsius surged into local homes.

Silly Timmy in French Silly Timmy en Français

Last week saw the introduction of the Silly Timmy Disaster Comic strip in German, now this week we have French with thanks to Maya Schaerer (a long time member of edu4drr.org) for the translation. I hope to be adding more as time goes on and as they become translated. Even then  there is a process that I go through ensuring font sizes and fonts are consistent with the original English and the taking PowerPoint versions and creating jpegs for easy distribution. I am including the Translated and edited PowerPoint below the comics in case his is of use! I noted that the comic strip paper I wrote with another edu4drr.org member, Dr Yasamin Izadkhah, has just passed 500 reads and a lot of these are coming from the Philippines, where it may mean the comics are being used! If you know, I would like to know! As always, Artwork by John A Abbott of Jot Studios and stories and montages by Justin Sharpe from …See More
