Indonesian slum village becomes Rainbow village after amazing makeover


If you want to attract people to your run-down village, you can either pay them to come, like this Italian mayor does, or you can make them want to come. Even if it’s an Indonesian slum village. The 54-year-old secondary school principal Slamet Widodo came up with a very colourful idea to make the Indonesian slum village Kampung Pelangi attractive. He decided to give the village a rainbow coloured makeover by painting 232 homes and adding street art to the place. Slamet wasn’t on his own for the project, he was supported by the Indonesian Builders Association and the government, who spend $22k on the makeover. The project also encourages “the active involvement of citizens in the improvement of their home.” The result is a one-of-a-kind rainbow village, which attracts loads of international tourists and other inhabitants, making the place more valuable. All with the help of a bit of paint.
