Utrecht Indonesian Day 2017

See full poster here.

Introduction
During the last three years of the events, Utrecht Indonesian Day (UID) becomes a symbol of a cultural event that provides the chance to maintain and strengthen the unique bond among Indonesian diaspora and the local community in the Netherlands. The celebration of UID had consistently highlighted the various aspect of the assimilation between the two nations. This attempt attracted a lot of attentions and supports of around 400 visitors each year.
This year, Indonesian Students’ Association in Utrecht (PPI Utrecht) determines to bring back the excitement of UID with a distinct theme of ‘Indonesian traditional games.’ It is expected that UID 2017 can be used by the modern families, either Indonesian, Dutch, mixed, or others, to introduce the traditional games that start to extinct despite its precious norm and educational values. We believe that UID 2017 will be the best event that provides the experience for everyone to observe, involve, and enjoy the Indonesian culture, especially the merriness of its traditional games.
