Hi everyone! Now i'm gonna share my awesome experience lately, I was choosen as one of Indonesian delegation for Nan Ying International Folklore Festival 2014 *yaaaay* ✌ Never crossed in my mind before that i'll represent my country in something big like this. Yes it's true that i start dancing since i was a kid, from Ballet to Korean, and sometimes Traditional too. But going abroad for cultural mission? Wow, what a big responsibility!
It all started by hearing the news about the recruitment of Pasir Putih Unpad. For those whose wondering, it's an sub-organization under CIOFF® Indonesia, a group of national representative’s of non-profit local art festivals organizations. As a non-government organization, CIOFF® is the authorized consultative for UNESCO. All this time CIOFF® Indonesia has collaborated with many art clubs, schools (from elementary to universities), local art clubs and our nation’s art and culture lovers, especially people from the provinces they represent. And CIOFF® Indonesia has been cooperated with Padjadjaran University to sending Indonesia delegation into folklore festival around the world! Divided into 2 sub-organization : Pasir Putih Unpad for Jatinangor section and USACE for Bandung section. Pasir Putih Unpad itself means 'Padjadjaran Seni dan Tari' and already participated in several culural mission such as International Giresun Aksu Festival in Turkey (2012) and Zakopane Festival of Highland Folklore in Polandia (2013). For this 2014, we gonna participate in Nan Ying International Folklore Festival in Tainan City, Taiwan.

So, i attend their meeting to get more information about the organization and festival. Did some interview and finally received the announcement that now i'm officially one of the delegates! Together with another 21 students derived from various faculties, we meet with the President of CIOFF® Indonesia and made a commitee. Since we're officially a Dancer & a Musician now, we gonna have a dance & music practice for several months with a profesionnal trainers from CIOFF® Indonesia. We also gonna made a farewell show before the departure as a sign of our thanks to university, parents and relatives. I volunteered myself to handle the job of Public Relation, Media Relation, and Art and Design. Voila! After our hardwork for 5-6 months, “Farewell Show : Joy of Togetherness With Indonesia Culture Towards Taiwan" held on September 20th, 2014 at Gedung Teater Indoor Dago Tea House, Bandung. Enjoy the pics! ☺
