“We’re fractured nations because we’re not reading or translating each other,” said Malaysian author Bernice Chauly during the UWRF17 panel on the 50th anniversary of ASEAN. Join our group of experts as they compare their experiences of cultural diplomacy, and invite us to consider how the arts can break down barriers and connect people across languages, cultures and politics.

“Kami adalah negara-negara yang terpecah-belah karena kami tidak saling membaca atau menerjemahkan satu sama lain,” kata penulis Malaysia Bernice Chauly selama panel UWRF17 pada peringatan 50 tahun ASEAN. Bergabunglah dengan kelompok ahli kami saat mereka membandingkan pengalaman mereka dalam diplomasi budaya, dan mengajak kita mempertimbangkan bagaimana seni dapat memecah hambatan dan menghubungkan orang-orang dari berbagai bahasa, budaya dan politik.
