Last Saturday of every month
Night Study Group
Would you like to learn more about Indonesia and its culture but work or have other daytime commitments that prevent you joining a daytime study group? Then the ‘Night Study Group’ (NSG) is the activity for you! On the last Wednesday of each month, IHS friends gather at the library in the evening and listen to a presentation from either an IHS friend or an external speaker on a topic related to Indonesian heritage. Past topics included a backward glance of living in Indonesia for over 30 plus years from Barbara Johnson; Amelia Liwe’s research on Permesta, the short-lived rebellion in Manado; Ian Burnett’s armchair voyage to the Spice Islands; a beautiful documentary film on batik; Dr. Hubert Gijzen on UNESCO’s concept of Culture in Development, World Heritage sites and Intangible Cultural Heritage; and Kevin O’Rourke’s analysis on Indonesia's Transition from Patronage-Fealty to the Democratic Rule-of-Law Woro Mastuti on Wayang Kulit Cina-Jawa (Chinese-Javanese shadow puppets), the Wehea Dayak‘s conservation efforts in East Kalimantan, and individual creativity by Nicole Lediard.
Please join Heritage friends for evenings that will enlighten and delight you. Our monthly program is publicized in the weekly E-news. We look forward to welcoming you to Night Study Group!
