Event description

Description

How do we engage with one of the world’s fastest-growing countries? A number of collaborative projects provide a glimpse of the way Indonesia will shape our creative practices in the future. The current issue of Garland uses the call “rame rame” (let’s do it) to reflect the particularly informal nature of creative collaboration that characterises Indonesia, which builds on the principle of “gotong royong” (mutual cooperation) on which the nation was founded. Speakers consider the nature of this practice and the questions it raises. While it provides a freedom to work together, does the lack of formality have a cost? Do more formal Western cultures have a positive role to place in Indonesia, such as education.

Speakers include Annie Gobel (RMIT jewellery graduate and winner of this year’s Radiant Pavilion People’s Choice), Professor Julian Goddard (Head of RMIT School of Art) and Nuraini Juliastuti (founder of KUNCI in Yogyakarta).
