Inspired by Indonesian arts and cultural traditions, Indonesia Kontemporer 2014, is a creative event mixing exhibitions, performances, workshops, crafts, film screenings, as well as food and handicrafts stalls.  Artists and crafts people participating in this event hailed from many parts of the world outside Indonesia. With their acute awareness of the source tradition while engaging with lives abroad, these works and offerings do not only remain inspired by Indonesian tradition but in turn contribute to shaping the arts and crafts of contemporary Indonesia. 

Draft Programme - further details will be announced in due course.
