Australia-Indonesia relationship improving despite Widodo's postponed visit

Australia-Indonesia relationship improving despite Widodo's postponed visit | Indonesian | Scoop.it
At Heathmont College in Melbourne's east, there has been a rise in the number of students taking Indonesian language classes since the introduction of the BRIDGE schools project, which directly connects Australian students with their peers in Indonesian schools.

The students talk to each other through video calls and the intercultural understanding on both sides is growing.

Heathmont College's Languages Co-ordinator Prema Devathas has seen Bahasa Indonesia enrolment numbers rise so much that she is expecting full classes next year across three grade levels.

"It's like a very personalised learning, like a borderless classroom," she said.

"You're learning with people there and there's a kind of connection and solidarity when kids share themselves with the others.

"They find out they're not the only ones who are teenagers. All teenagers around the world are quite similar."

For these students, making cultural adjustments with Australia's nearest Asian neighbour has become easier to do.

Interview: Eka Kurniawan on ‘Beauty Is a Wound’

Interview: Eka Kurniawan on ‘Beauty Is a Wound’ | Indonesian | Scoop.it

Beauty Is a Wound, the just-released English translation of Eka Kurniawan’s 2002 epic novel, Cantik Itu Luka, is receiving glowing reviews, and has prompted comparisons with Salman Rushdie and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Kate Reitzenstein's insight:

Currently reading Beauty is a Wound (English translation) and I'm loving the 'West Javanese voice' that the author uses. This novel would be  suitable for tertiary students of Indonesian while the interview transcript (click on the title for the full version) has some interesting reflections about the nature of bahasa Indonesia as a relatively new language and the tensions between spoken and written forms.

Perjalanan Shafira Ikuti Perayaan Kemerdekaan Indonesia di Perth Australia

Program yang menyuguhkan berita atau informasi menarik dari dunia entertainment, di dalam dan luar negeri berdasar pada fakta dan informasi.

Kate Reitzenstein's insight:

Celebrity Shafira Um summarizes the recent visit by Indonesian artists (Michael J & Pacenogei) for a series of events held in Perth around Indonesian Independence Day 2016. I was fortunate to be present at both performances featured in this video by NET Entertainment and witnessed the positive engagement by Australian audiences. Lucky students at the schools concert in Mandurah Baptist College will never forget Michael's performance and hopefully be inspired to continue learning the language of our nearest neighbour. This video remains a useful resource for upper school students across Australia studying bahasa Indonesia.

When Death Doesn’t Mean Goodbye

When Death Doesn’t Mean Goodbye | Indonesian | Scoop.it

For Torajans, the death of the body isn’t the abrupt, final, severing event of the West. Instead, death is just one step in a long, gradually unfolding process. Late loved ones are tended at home for weeks, months, or even years after death. Funerals are often delayed as long as necessary to gather far-flung relatives. The grandest funeral ceremonies are week-long events drawing Torajans home in a vast reverse diaspora from wherever in the world they may be. When a brigade of a hundred or more motorcycles and cars rips through town accompanying a corpse home from far away, traffic stops in a manner that not even an ambulance or a police officer can command. Here, death trumps life.

Kate Reitzenstein's insight:

Toraja is simply the most fascinating place in Indonesia! This article explains the funeral rites well (caution-there are some very graphic photos). Death, the dead and funerals are something you cannot escape when you visit the highlands.  I was invited by my driver to meet his aunt and mother, who had both died 8 and 5 years beforehand.

Perth Indonesian Film Festival turns to crowdfunding to run in 2016

Perth Indonesian Film Festival turns to crowdfunding to run in 2016 | Indonesian | Scoop.it
Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth (BBIP) is a WA-based cultural non-profit organisation. We are run entirely by volunteers and coordinate a range of activities throughout each year. One of our main events is the annual Perth Indonesian Film Festival, now in its sixth year.

The Festival showcases the diversity of Indonesia to the people of Western Australia, through the enjoyable experience of film. With the screening of 30 Indonesian films since 2011, Perth audiences have experienced Indonesian stories as told by some of Indonesia’s best and most prominent filmmakers and had the opportunity to meet and chat with many high profile actors, directors and producers at the screenings. Films are screened in Indonesian with English subtitles and are selected to represent different genres of film and to illustrate aspects of life and culture within and across Indonesia, from Aceh in the north of Sumatra to Palembang in the south, and to Java and across the vast Indonesian archipelago to Papua. It's a superb and fun way to learn about our nearest regional neighbour, Indonesia. The event is really brought to life through the presence of the Indonesian film personalities. This sets it apart from other film festivals.

Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth (Inc) do not make a profit from the Perth Indonesian Film Festival, in fact the organisation loses money each year and we do not have the funds to hold the Perth Indonesian Film Festival in 2016. We are negotiating a great range of Indonesian films again this year but in order for it to become a reality, we are seeking the extra funds ($15,000) through the generosity of the public.
Kate Reitzenstein's insight:

Just donated to the cause. Every year school screenings are a sell-out and Australian students benefit greatly from the post screening Q&A sessions with directors and actors. If everyone chips in a little we can help PIFF continue. Click the title to donate via the 'pozible' site.

The language Aussie kids learn fast

The language Aussie kids learn fast | Indonesian | Scoop.it
INDONESIAN might just be the fastest growing language among Australian preschoolers, with three and four year olds quick to pick up the tongue of one of our nearest neighbours.

An interim report into the federal government’s early learning language app suggests preschoolers are finding it easier to learn Indonesian and Japanese than French.
