"Join us preserving Indonesia's Heritage”

The Indonesian Heritage Society (“IHS”) is a non-profit organization, established in 1970, by Indonesian and expat volunteers just like you. We celebrated our 50th anniversary last year.


From the initial group of 17 volunteers, today the organization has grown to include hundreds of individuals. Our volunteers form the heart of IHS, organizing all events, activities and operations of the organisation.

Our Mission

We are a non-profit organization providing volunteer support and assistance to Indonesia's cultural institutions.

Our Vision

We promote knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Indonesia's cultural heritage through uniting diverse communities in activities focused on learning and sharing.

Our Values

Cultural heritage, 

service to the community, respect, integrity, diversity & community building.


Our Library includes more than 6,000 books, pamphlets, magazines and slides on Indonesia and Southeast Asia generally. Pre-pandemic period, the Library used to be our main HUB for members of the society to come and read or do some research or hold various small events, have study group meetings and monthly coffee mornings.
