This paper examines the role of actors in a participatory project, a case study of the glass-bead traditional craft industry in rural Indonesia. The project aimed to unite and empower rural craftspeople with regard to their unique potential. The problems of empowering rural craftspeople were complicated, due to the interrelated aspect of rural community life, cultural and educational backgrounds, as well as the local political situation. However, through a comprehensive understanding of the community prior to the project and by maintaining the communication, craftspeople were engaged actively in the project by promoting the craft industry to local buyers. The researcher, other facilitators and the community leader gave supportive roles at the middle and the end stage of the project.
