From Friday to Sunday (28-30 November) I participated in a convention organised by Mufakat Budaya (Culture Consensus) at Mercure Hotel in Ancol, Jakarta. Scholars, poets, writers, artists, legislators, and many others joined the meeting. The event has just been closed.
Poet Radhar Panca Dahana chairs the organising body. He also chairs the plenary sessions during the gathering. This is the second meeting after the one held in Cikini, Jakarta, in 2009.
I met with some friends here, e.g. poet Ahmad Syubbanuddin Alwy (see the photograph above, wearing a hat) and art critic Wicaksono Adi. Alwy was also my roommate during the meeting.
