Saiful Bakhri


I am an Indonesian emerging conservator and a graduate student in the UCLA Conservation of Material Culture PhD Program. Through this program, I seek to address the cultural importance and physical production of traditional materials for conservation treatment to better meet the environmental, social, and cultural needs of non-Western communities and how they can be incorporated into Western practice. Previously, I worked for three years at the Bali Cultural Heritage Preservation Office, Gianyar, Bali, a technical unit responsible for the conservation of cultural heritage in three provinces of Indonesia: Bali, West and East Nusa Tenggara.
