Cultural Exchange Through Humor and an Art Support Group in Indonesia

Presentations
Luke Lawrence and Mika Karashima are from the British Council in Japan. 2012 is an exciting year for the UK, with the London Olympics and Paralympics games, as well as the Diamond Jubilee. In their presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93), that explain how the British Council in Japan has launched a campaign named the GREAT OGIRI to promote the usefulness of learning English and exchanging culture through humor.

Raymond Malvin's presentation (in Indonesian, from PKN Jakarta Vol. 8) is about Kopi Keliling, a movement (in the form of a variety of creative activities) that believes that art and creativity can make changes that are meaningful to the Indonesian people. By juxtaposing art and creativity (both in terms of work and the person behind the work) to a wider community, it hopes to promote a desire to produce art. Kopi Keliling allows talented young visual artists to display their work through events held regularly, moving from one public space to another. Although the intent is to showcase the works of these artists, Kopi Keliling understands that without an audience these works are meaningless, and so another goal is to create interaction between the audience and the art (and artist).

Posters
We have just one new poster on the Tumblr blog today, and it's an uncovered "blast from the past" from 2010, for Bialystok's very first PKN.
