Today I am thrilled to announce we have received confirmation that Rafi has been invited to attend Festival Indonesia in Melbourne, which is an absolute dream come true.
This year, Festival Indonesia will hold a series of events leading up to Festival Weekend on 22 and 23 September at Queensbridge Square, Southbank in Melbourne.
The 2012 Festival series will showcase Culinary, Fashion, Travel, Culture and Business from Indonesia. At the beginning of spring season in September, Festival Indonesia will fill the city with Fashion Exhibitions, Indonesian Culinary Workshop with two leading Indonesian chefs, ANZ Business Forum, a Travel and Tourism Networking, a Regional Investment Forum, a vibrant cultural program, an interactive theatrical production – The Balinese Princess and The Funky Monkey, and our highlight cultural night, Indonesia Night – a showcase of the Colours of Indonesia.
The series of events will then end with the Festival Indonesia Weekend 2012, bringing together over 150 local and international performers in a dynamic program. The weekend will bring the diversity of Indonesia to Melbourne – from vibrant performances, handicraft workshops, food bazaars, travel exhibitions and creative fashion.
If you are in Melbourne in September, make sure you go along to join in a celebration of Indonesian culture at Festival Indonesia 2012, and to support the incredible talent of Indonesia’s youngest Fashion Designer, Rafi Ridwan.
