Saman Dance Workshop

CIOFF®️ Indonesia

During this quarantine period, CIOFF®️ Indonesia adapted and shifted its activities in promoting culture.

It hosted a virtual class for youth and the public across continents to learn the Saman Dance, inscribed by Indonesia on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding.

By being at home, it doesn’t mean we can’t spread our culture to others. This workshop is a three-day workshop initiated by CIOFF®️ Mexico, and CIOFF®️ Indonesia joined as one of the facilitators, with more than 70 persons from Latin America becoming students.

Regardless of the time differences, with the help of technology, the workshop went so well and we had a fun time, sharing our culture.
