Background Indonesia is one of the world’s most culturally and linguistically diverse country in the world. Indonesia’s cultural dialogue is worthy of being a reference for the International community to answer the challenges of globalization as well as take advantage of business opportunity.
Why it is important to have an Indonesian Cultural Centre in Austin, TX? Austin is known for being the center of arts in Texas and a supporter of the small, unique, and local business communities. While platforms for the Indonesian culture in Austin and surrounding areas were diverse, they were still scattered. We needed a vessel to harmonize, promote, educate, and appreciate Indonesia’s talent, tradition and heritage.
Purpose of establishment Install a facility for Indonesian based activities, including meetings and social events. To enhance the image and cultivate a deeper appreciation for Indonesian culture by the International community. To harmoniously unify the cultural diversity based on citizen’s love for the motherland.
Our mission To preserve the tradition and culture within the Indonesian community. To introduce and promote Indonesian culture, ie. Performing arts, Visual arts, Culinary Arts, and Life Style. To utilize economical capability as a means of welfare.
Our initiatives Community intention in common with the awareness of the cultural potential within us (skills, talents, assets). We arrange a socialization concept through fundraising activities and a direct interaction with community members. We are pliable in the formation and program development. However, it is with the appropriate values and Bhineka Tunggal Ika (Unity in Diversity) with effective and respectful communication.
