This research observes the construction of self-identity in a community called Wadas Kelir Creative House or Rumah Kreatif Wadas Kelir (RKWK) Purwokerto. RKWK is a community focusing on children’s creativity development particularly in literacy area. Reasoning and realization of children creativity are built through education pattern, games of language, numbers, logic, colors, art, and fun moves. This place facilitated children with creativity and nice performance even though they come from an unhealthy environment with a high rate of criminality, low education, low economy. This research uses qualitative approach and narrative psychology perspective. Data are collected by using several methods: interview, observation, and documentation. Data analysis involves data reduction,categorization, and synthesis. The narration of children’s life stories shows that the process of self-identity construction develops progressively. Self-identity construction is started by implanting the meaning of WKCK which covers various kinds of values: work/creation as a form of self-existence, appreciation towards the whole wide world, and attitudes such as love, dreams, and kindness as human guards. Self-forming is completed through explorations such as self-understanding, self-interest and talent identification by creative games, activities, and experience enrichment. Stage of commitment as a stage approaching identity maturity is accomplished through determination towards dreams, optimism in pursuing the future, and appreciation to the value of ‘unlimited creativity’.
