Batik Day Flash Mob: Surprised Dance Off on North Terrace

02/10/2015

In commemorating the International Batik Day, PPIA UniSA took the celebration to the streets of Adelaide in a form of a flash Mob. A flash mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression. We organized a crowd of roughly  50 participants consisting of Indonesian students from various institutions in Adelaide, as well as members of AIA (Australia-Indonesia Association) to dance in batik (Indonesian traditional clothing), performing the “Poco – Poco” Traditional Dance. This quick event attracted the attention of numerous pedestrians passing by North Terrace during the busy lunch hour.

Spiced Events: University of South Australia International Cook Off!

Eating, cooking and learning about the mysteries of other cultures through foods offers a rich opportunity to develop cultural understanding and apprehend the diverse traditions and customs around the world. Blend with that the excitement and glamour of cinema and you have the perfect recipe for learning a culture.

SPICED, is a flagship initiative of University of South Australia (UniSA) to develop cross cultural literacy and understanding through a series of cultural cooking demonstrations and movie screenings. Each week a different culture is showcased, as crowds of students from across Adelaide amass to spoil their taste buds and experience life from a microscopic cross-cultural angle. The format of SPICED is pretty simple, each week students learn how to prepare foods from a different region. Followed by screening of an international movie from the “region-in-focus”.

Collaborating with the Student engagement office of the University, PPIA UniSA was involved in the event promoting Indonesian traditional cuisine by serving Nasi tumpeng (Yellow rice), pergedel (Potato pancake), ayam goreng (fried chicken), bihun goreng (fried vermicelli noodle), and es buah ( Traditional Fruit drinks). We facilitated approximately 400 students during the event, both local and international. The event was a huge success measured by the level of enthusiasm of the students! Through this event, we started a baby step in promoting Indonesian cultural diversity to the world!
