Invitation to the Public: Indonesian Conference and Cultural Event (ICCE) April 24, 2009 with Event Agenda (Newest)

April 1, 2009

Annual event discusses, celebrates, and shares Indonesian cultural diversity

On April 24th, the 2009 Indonesian Conference and Cultural Event (ICCE 2009) will be held at the Hawaii Imin International Conference Center at the East-West Center, 1777 East-West Road, Manoa from 2 PM – 9 PM. (open event agenda)

The topic for this year is ‘A Decade of Reform 1998-2009’; looking at changes after Soeharto’s regime ended in 1998. The Spirit of Reformation promising democracy, equity, and justice among Indonesian people has been the underlying force guiding these changes. However, after a decade of reformation, Indonesia’s democracy has been questioned in relation to its ability to ensure that every individual has rights and access to maximize his or her opportunities. Democratic forms of authority and politics have not showed their correspondence to the culture of democracy at the grass-root level. ‘Power’ has not been distributed equally to every citizen as democracy promises. ICCE 2009 is expected to be one way for Indonesian students and experts on Indonesia to exercise their academic intellect for the good of Indonesia while promoting Indonesia to the outside world without promoting a particular political or religious message.

There will be two seminar sessions at the conference covering contemporary politics and arts and culture in Indonesia, with speakers including professors and graduate students from UH Manoa, Arizona State University, and Columbia University. Furthermore, cultural celebrations will include cultural exhibits, traditional dance and music from Aceh to Bali, Kartinian ethnic fashion show, Dangdut music (Indonesian popular music), and Indonesian food.

ICCE 2009 is organized by the Indonesian Student Association in the US (PERMIAS) Hawaii Chapter, Nusantara Society, and Nongkrong Yuk! Indonesian Club (both at UH Manoa); and co-sponsored by the Embassy and Consulate General of Indonesia in the US and East West Center Education Program.
