It is a great pleasure to publish this book, a collection of papers reporting the 11thacademic forum of Urban Research Plaza held at the Multi-media room of Universitas Gadjah Mada on February 18, 2013. The contributors came from Japan and Indonesia. This academic forum was jointly organized by Urban Research Plaza Yogyakarta Sub-center of Universitas Gadjah Mada, Osaka City University, and Indonesia Institute of the Arts. The theme was 'Social Accessibility through Culture' This academic forum has drawn ou{; attention into how locality should be tapped in our efforts to empower urban community in order that urban development can be adddressed more accordingly and effectively. The urban study in the mainstream of academic society was clearly established as a global study, and nowadays, it is growing alongside urban social problems, which are becoming all too familiar for countries with ongoing urban development. The local government normally addresses urban social problems, sometimes with limited financial support from government at a higher level. Recent increasing interests have been shown in participatory arts programs, which are low-cost, flexible, and responsive to local needs. This use of arts and cultural activity coincides with a shift in the emphasis in regeneration strategies towards seeing local people as the principal asset, through which renewal can be achieved. In today's world, there is an emerging trend to decentralize the investment, operation, and maintenance of publi c services to the lower levels of the government. However, the transfer of responsibilities to local governments is not always matched with necessary resources. Financing urban infrastructure development is a common and persistent challenge to the local or city governments across the world. There is a growing support for the view that real improvements in urban development will not be achieved until the issue of people empowerment is . addressed. However, if empowerment is defined as a grassroots political process, which results in a redistribution of power in society, urban development should take into account the locality and sites as substantive examples of people'" empowerment. The unsheltered property of human beings in the form of intangible property such as knowledge, trust, shared understanding and beliefs, values and other factors can be made as took that enable members of urban society to improve their quality of life. Those arguments are the base why research and discussion on social accessibility through culture are important issue in urban research context. This conference aimed at developing interdisciplina ry perspective to inform activities in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors as well as future research to improve the quality of social life in urban communities. The forum was divided into two sessions. The papers presented in this book are from Universitas Gadjah Mada: written by lka Putra, Mimi Savitri, Jujun Kurniawan, Ario Wicaksono, from Indonesian Institute of the Arts: written by Alfi Luviani, Retno Mustikawati, and form Osaka City University: written by Tomoko Hayashi, Banban Li.
