About us

The Manggar Megar Foundation
Wim and Hermine Kromoredjo, together with the late Mrs. S. Djowikromo,
took the initiative to set up a foundation. They named this foundation Manggar Megar,
and registered it officially in The Hague on July 10th, 2004.
The meaning of its name, "Manggar Megar," is: "Blooming coconut flowers,"
or "the coconut blossoms are blooming." 
The story behind the choice of the name Manggar Megar is the idea of a new or
young foundation that is still developing, or blooming.
Our goals are the development and preservation of Javanese performing arts in the Netherlands,
including almost forgotten performing arts such as Wayang Kulit and Javanese theatre.
