Ruang Tengah

Started from a special session called "A Rare Conversation with Sapardi Djoko Damono x Joko Pinurbo" in the 2016's festival, this special program now has an official name: "Ruang Tengah", which will present a rare, intimate, deeper conversation with Southeast Asia's most influential literary and intellectual figures. Up to this year's festival we can only present Indonesia's giants. But in later years hopefully we will include legendary figures from other countries in ASEAN.

ALF proceeds with controversial events despite protests
