Theme: Frames Unframed

This event occurred on
February 4, 2017
9:30am - 1:30pm WIB
(UTC +7hrs)
Cilandak, Jakarta Raya

Frames Unframed is all about exploring new perspectives and escaping from our comfort zone to tackle some big issues that our society faces. Our conference, as always, will entertain talks from a wide spectrum of disciplines — ranging from the sciences to the arts and environment to humanities. We will also be entertaining some inspirational musical performances to be given by skilled artists.

Our conference has really grown over the last four years and this year’s event will be bigger than ever. For the first time ever, this year’s event will feature a question-and-answer session where attendees will be given the opportunity to converse with speakers, performers, and even some organizers.
