The Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society is especially grateful to the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Vancouver for inviting VAHMS to its thematic cultural and creative economy promotional program named “A Quick Journey to Indonesia: Discover its Uniqueness.” The event showcased the rich and diverse culture of Indonesia, such as delicious cuisine, wood carvings, musical instruments, traditional dances, and beautiful garments. Several Indonesian businesses across B.C. were featured, such as The Batik Library, Cantiq Living, Casamia Home, Pernakan Kitchen, and Archipelago Marketplace.
Around 100 business people, government officials, media-persons, and entrepreneurs attended the event and instantly fell in love with what Indonesia has to offer. VAHMS is excited to collaborate with the Consulate General over the coming year and for explorASIAN 2022 to showcase the phenomenal beauty of Indonesia. Until then, below are some photos from the event of the traditional dance and garments, and of Leticia Sanchez, the President of VAHMS, with the Consul General of Indonesia, Mr. Hendra Halim:
