CSEAS Outreach Event

Inspired by Indonesian arts and cultural traditions, Indonesia Kontemporer 2013, 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 including Europe and the U.S. 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. The festival, Indonesia Kontemporer 2013, is hoped to enthuse others in the U.K. and Europe to share and express their arts and cultures.

Indonesia Kontemporer 2013 is co-hosted with ARTi UK, an organization with the aim of promoting artists, from all parts of the world, who want to perform works inspired by Indonesia arts and cultural traditions.



ARTi UK, established in August 2010, is a non-profit organisation aiming at promoting Indonesian arts and culture within the UK's cultural diversity.
