The iconic Heineken® Dragon, expertly crafted from recycled Heineken cans collected at DWPXV, enhances the festive spirit in welcoming the Year of the Wooden Dragon,” explained Jessica Setiawan, Marketing Director of Multi Bintang Indonesia. 

The Heineken® Dragon landmark, stretching 15 metres, is crafted by utilising more than 8,800 recycled Heineken® cans and wooden pallets gathered during the DWPVX event at GWK Bali in December 2023. The collection of cans will also has a positive impact on the well-being of local artists in Bali. Through “Rice for Bali”, Heineken® donated 190 bags of rice, and these were distributed to the wives of artists spread throughout the North Bali region. 

This dragon icon is the result of a collaboration between Heineken® and Dimas Judhi Saputra, an artist from Jakarta, along with his team of 12 craftsmen. “Collaborating with Heineken® to build this dragon installation is a source of pride for me and my team.
