We warmly invite Arts alumni and friends, to join us as we celebrate the achievements of our Indonesian graduates. 

Hosted by the new Dean of Arts, our panel of alumni speakers will share their insights and experiences on 'Impact and Change in Indonesia'. Faced with challenges that are constantly changing, in a constantly changing world, our alumni are change shapers and makers. 

In a climate of division and increasingly polarised societies, they exemplify how we can create a positive narrative. We hope this event will inspire and encourage you, as you reconnect with old friends and meet new ones.
