  • This event has passed.

Indonesia is a country with a depth and breadth of diversity which never fails to surprise. Join us for ‘Spotlight on Indonesia’ where we will hear from Perth residents Annette Wiguna, Kevin Ng and Martha Weruing. They will share their different experiences as people of Indonesian background, interwoven with political commentary, cultural observation and social history. They will also read selected works from Indonesian writers including Zeffrey Alkatiri, Eka Kurniawan and Lily Yulianti Farid, followed by a question and answer session.

‘Spotlight on Indonesia’ is part of PEN Perth’s ‘Spotlight’ series where we focus on the contemporary plight of writers, artists and journalists in countries experiencing hardship and how that might affect responsible freedom of expression, media censorship, and political interference. Please join us and help continue our work for press freedom.

This event is at capacity! Registration is now closed.
