When the Australia-Indonesia Centre (AIC) was established in late 2013 by the leaders of the two nations, it was agreed that one of the new centre’s core objectives would be to improve Australians’ understanding and appreciation of contemporary Indonesia and, likewise, Indonesians’ understanding and appreciation of contemporary Australia.

Collaboration and exchange in fields covering music, film, fashion, visual art and writing over four years has brought Indonesians and Australians together to learn and create, developing their understanding of the people of the other country, and their appreciation of the experiences and approaches of their counterparts across the sea.
