On Saturday, 22 June 2019, the city of Jakarta celebrated its 492nd anniversary. We here at INYS decided to celebrate in style with our friends at Dime Por Qué (Spanish-speaking community of Jakarta) for a special Language Meetup at the Textile Museum.
With the overarching theme of Art, INYS and DPQ spent the day learning about the history of Indonesian textiles with a special emphasis on Batik. As a special collaborative edition of our Language Meetup, INYS continued to teach a few Dutch words and concepts of Art to our participants.
Muchas gracias to Dime Por Qué for collaborating on this event and sharing the culture and language of Spain. Terima kasih to the staff at the Textile Museum for being such gracious hosts and showing us the batik collection.
We ended the day with some fun games such as Telephone and charades.
