How do we create belonging and space for ourselves to feel a sense of inclusion? Our speakers come together to discuss their experiences of living between cultures and the importance of cultural diversity, reflecting on how stories of the marginalized become stories of belonging. How does this ultimately influence their creative practices?

Bagaimana kita menciptakan rasa memiliki dan ruang bagi diri kita sendiri untuk merasakan sebuah inklusi? Para pembicara hadir untuk mendiskusikan pengalaman hidup antar budaya dan pentingnya keragaman budaya, merefleksikan bagaimana kisah kaum terpinggirkan menjadi kisah saling memiliki. Bagaimana hal ini akhirnya memengaruhi proses kreatif mereka?
