At the high art end, there will be what they’re calling “the timeless artistry of Indonesian traditional dances”.
As well, there’ll be arts and crafts displays and stalls, other cultural exhibitions, a fashion show – for it should not be forgotten that present-day Jakarta is home to some leading-edge designers – music workshops and live music performances.

Indonesian Food and Cultural Festival, Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, 8 Darwin Avenue, Yarralumla, 10.30am-6pm, Saturday October 29. Free admission.
