Free

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 comment, 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 effect responsible freedom of expression, media censorship, and political interference. Please join us and help continue our work for press freedom.

This is a free event but RSVP is essential. Reserve your spot via the Centre for Stories website.

Join PEN Perth beforehand for its AGM, which will be held at the Centre for Stories from 5.30-6.15 pm on the same day.
