For many in the audience it’s a pleasurable daydream: building a life on one of Indonesia’s islands. Our panelists’ origins are diverse but all have found an island home here. They come together to reflect on the trials and tribulations of making one’s way in a new culture, the changes they’ve observed, and the ongoing influence of Indonesia on their lives.

Bagi banyak penonton, ini adalah angan-angan yang menyenangkan: membangun kehidupan di salah satu pulau di Indonesia. Asal-usul panel kami beragam tapi semua telah menemukan sebuah pulau di sini. Mereka berkumpul untuk merenungkan cobaan dan kesengsaraan membuat jalan seseorang dalam budaya baru, perubahan yang telah mereka amati, dan pengaruh Indonesia yang terus berlanjut dalam kehidupan mereka
