#StoryTellingOnWayang
This woman who holds the wayang figure called Bima, has discovered herself to be a 'dalang'. Dalang is a Javanese word to refer to a person who perform 'wayang puppets'. Wayang puppets have many figures who represent characteristics of humankind. I have known this woman, for seven years of working on grassroots to empower women in our province. But only now, bu Siti Murkanti, as her name said that she has becomes herself. He has fulfilled his childhood dream to be a dalang. Traditionally, only men can be a dalang. I have created 12 stories of the 1,5 hours wayang performance to be presented publicly for serving our society. This theme is about Bima looking for holy water which its channel has covered by plastics. In this picture, we have practiced together how story telling technics can be applied to strengthen the performance of a dalang as played by her.

Entering in this new era of globalization, we need to prepare our community. Learning English together is a must for coping to the change in this modern world. English is needed not only for those who persuade their higher education but also to those who work within a grassroots movement. We are preparing our villagers to have their capacities to produce from their knowledge and skills which are embedded within their artistic cultures. We need firstly to enable ourselves to study English. That is the motivation I have shared with my people here. Then you see the results. With a new method of English learning for adults, all participants appreciate their own capacities to be proud for more study to achieve their better services in our society. You never say that I am too old for an excited study to enable you to see new world to be explored. Learning makes us having great enthusiasm for life.

batterydance After 24 hours of travel and a few hours of sleep, we were already into the mix here in Busan, superbly supported by the staff of the American Presence Post and the U.S. Embassy Seoul.
Each of our dancers has been matched with a student of musical theater from the Dongseo University who will assist in the Dancing to Connect workshops; and a student from Pusan National University who will serve as English-Korean interpreter.
Mira got right down to business with Kim So-Jeong (r.) teacher trainee; and Kim Ji-Woo Interpreter (center). #culturaldiplomacy #dance #korea #busan #dancingtoconnect

exchangeourworld This colorful mural was created as part of an American Arts Incubator program that is taking place in Managua, Bluefields and Leon. American Arts Incubator uses new media and mural arts as a means for engaging youth, artists, and underserved community members in overseas communities in Asia to advance U.S. foreign policy by addressing a local community issue, such as women's empowerment, HIV-AIDS prevention, social inclusion, conflict resolution, and the environment. American artists conduct workshops, master classes, talks and other outreach events. 2w

I took this lovely picture of Paox Iben and his wife Nur Janah. She said that her husband takes care of his own hair. He has grown his hair since I knew his 17 years ago. His hair has brought a blessing because he can feel calmness coming out from his brain and feeling to write three novel relating to human struggles for justice and peace. His three novels are Medulla Sinculasis (2011), Gadis Gurun ( 2013) and the recently one titled Tambora 1815 (2015). Tambora shows how this world has been intertwined since the time of colonization in this part of this earth. Indonesia was the center of spice rout in the past that brought the western and eastern traders to negotiate their power on the global market at the time. Our world connection has continued to now to inspire us for making a better understanding of a global society as hoped by Paox Iben, and you all right!

djchela This past Friday #nextlevelsenegal completed our residency with a concert at the historic Daniel Serano National Theater in #Dakar #Senegal with performances and collaborations from the DJs, Beatmakers, Dancers and MCs. It was a packed house including the honorable Youssou N'Dour, the US ambassador to Senegal, children from an orphanage we worked with, and many others. Just amazing energy and a powerful culmination to our time.
Here are the DJs from the academy: L-R DJ Tosh, DJ Zap, DJ Komodo, DJ Leuz, @djgask, DJ Bik One, DJ Zeyna (Senegal's first female DJ and a dope turntablist!) and DJ Coner. It was incredible working with this class over two weeks. We trained hard, focusing on mixing, scratching, scratch sequences, performance, battling, and entrepreneurialism. We put a live set together that showcased group tricks and scratches, and they rocked it. They helped hype my routine, and I rocked it. So fun--Begee!

I came away with a renewed respect for the infinite art of DJing, and those who work on their craft. For the international power of Hip Hop culture and the many styles within. I know this ensemble will continue to do big things as the leaders they are.

I'm so grateful to all the folks behind the scenes who helped this exchange happen and for the embrace I felt by the motherland. The grace, style, creativity, trust and exchange, an absolute blessing beyond words. #nextlevelusa #hiphopdiplomat #hiphopeducator #culturaldiplomacy

Only now I can realize about #timetravelling in this #OneEarthForAll. I am sending my warm greetings for those who travel around the world by time to stop here in #BeautyfulIndonesian where people welcome foreigners to share their rich cultures, traditions, religions to grow together within the beauty of this nature. While waiting for the conference to begin, breathing the breezing wind and seeing the white cap wave coming to seasore, I know many those have come far to here to taste the life. They bring back together with #timetravelling their memory of hospitality among human kind. So they can be transformed to be kind and respect because they have experienced how they are welcome in the land of others while time does travel. Farsijana sends her warm tropical greetings along with the #timevtravelling from #Lombok to #Jakarta, #London, #Paris, #Sydney, #NewYork, to #Seoul and more for world's justice and peace.
