THE EMBASSY OF THE REPUBLIC OF INDONESIA IN BERN, AND THE UNIVERSITY OF LIECHTENSTEIN, INVITE YOU TO JOIN FOR THE INDONESIAN DAY.

Stretched for almost 8 million square kilometres, Indonesia is a melting pot for 250 million people with 1340 ethnic groups, 742 local languages, and 6 religions. Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, making it a strategic position in the world. You may easily reckon it on the map: The Emerald Archipelago, people call it.

Indonesia itself is the world`s 4th largest population and the 3rd largest democracy in the world. A place where diversity of cultures is not only celebrated, but translated into unity. Being united in one national language, the Indonesian language, is not making Indonesians ignore their ethnical roots. Foods, clothing, and dancing always become the calling for home.

10:00-12:00 Cooking workshop (for max. 20 people)

The use of many different spices and the variety of preparing are some of the unique characteristics of Indonesian food. The workshop will be conducted by an Indonesian who lives in Zürich, Switzerland. All ingredients and utensils will be provided for free. The participants will have the chance to taste their cooked-food for lunch.

13:00-14:30 Batik workshop (for max. 50 people)

UNESCO has been recognising Indonesian "Batik" as a World Heritage since 2 October 2009. The unique process includes the "lilin" to paint the batik pattern. The batik workshop will give the chance to the participants to make their own batik handkerchief to take home.

14:30-16:30 Dancing workshop (for max. 50 people)

Indonesian traditional dance is a legacy, being passed down from generation to generation. The dance workshop will be instructed by a professional and famous dancing group from Riau, located in the Eastern part of Sumatra Island. The participants will learn not only the dancing but also the true meaning behind every movement.

Note: All workshop participants will receive an Indonesian souvenir from the Embassy.

18:00-20:00 Reception honoring the 300th anniversary of the Principality of Liechtenstein
