Public Open Events Programme: June - September 2019
This programme of open days and events in the UK this summer is to raise visibility and awareness of the practice of Amerta Movement and to share some of its applications.
These open events offer opportunities to experience, and sometimes to participate in, work inspired by specific environments and sense of community which create new dialogue.
Postcards from Amerta is an ongoing artistic opportunity for those practising/inspired by Amerta Movement and Prapto’s work. You are invited to participate in an imaginative, travelling art exhibition communicating and sharing experiences for Blossoming Blessing of Amerta in Europe, which will follow the course of Prapto’s 2019 workshops in Europe.

Amerta movement, developed in the 1970s, is the movement practice of Suprapto Suryodarmo, a Javanese movement artist. Exploration is at the heart of this non-stylised approach with roots in free movement practice, Javanese Theravada Buddhism and Javanese Sumarah meditation practice.
Prapto's approach to movement as creative life practice brings dialogue between traditions and can help people learn more about their own habits, cultures and art practices by becoming aware of their movement habits. Amerta movement cultivates an attitude towards a more engaged and embodied life, understanding of oneself, our natural environment and others.
