This half-day event will hold a variety of fun opportunities to learn more about Indonesia.
Indonesia is a country rich in culture, history, and tradition, but awareness of Indonesian culture is not as widespread as other countries such as China or Japan.
Through a series of short sessions we would like to introduce you to a few aspects of Indonesia. Come to one, two, or all!
