UNESCO included Indonesian shadow puppet theater in the representative list of intangible cultural heritage in 2008. This proves that Indonesian shadow puppet art is a unique culture internationally. There is philosophical depth and value in wayang, but many young Indonesians are not aware of the philosophical depth of wayang. In addition, wayang activists themselves feel that there is a lack of youth involvement in preserving wayang. This is because young people prefer other cultures which are considered better or more appropriate to current conditions. Therefore, the aim of this activity is to encourage the movement to revitalize wayang culture by young people. One way to attract the interest of Indonesian youth is to provide facilities for creative writing and writing practice. Youth are expected to actively write or rewrite wayang stories according to contemporary creativity or characteristics. The targets of this activity are youth recruited by the Wayang Sarip Literary Community partners in Terung Kulon village, Krian, Sidoarjo. This activity took place with a two-day workshop on wayang and creative writing techniques. This activity involved key resource persons, puppet experts and creative writers from Airlangga University. The results of this activity are articles with ISBNs, educational videos, articles in the mass media, and education for participants in the form of story scripts.
