The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 
31 August 2019
Author / Presenters: 
Sally Warhaft, Andreas Harsono, and Norman Erikson Pasaribu

What can we expect from President Joko Widodo’s second presidential term? How do Indonesia’s deep political and religious divisions play out in the lives of ordinary Indonesians, and how might they affect the nation’s prospects and ambitions? 

In partnership with the Melbourne Writers Festival, we’re presenting a wide-ranging discussion on the future of our great and complicated neighbour. Sally Warhaft will speak with Jakarta-based reporter Andreas Harsono and celebrated Indonesian poet Norman Erikson Pasaribu. At RMIT’s Kaleide Theatre, they’ll discuss the critical problems and opportunities facing Indonesian society today.

Presented in partnership with Melbourne Writers Festival. 

Andreas Harsono is supported by Human Rights Watch and Monash University Publishing.
