From Sabang to Merauke
As a part of our 10-year anniversary celebration and the launch of our bilingual compilation of short stories, Footprints / Tapak Tilas, Dalang Publishing held a series of events, From Sabang to Merauke / Dari Sabang ke Merauke, between January 18 and June 10, 2023.
During this time, Dalang and a participating university hosted a “literary conversation” in each of Indonesia’s six regions. Our goal was to use modern technology to visit each area with a story of their locality chosen from Footprints /Tapak Tilas, as a conversation starting point. We then engaged in a discussion among the author, translator, and area-specific audiences.
Our intent was to inspire local writers to submit their unpublished work. The six teleconferences are recorded on YouTube, and we invite you to join us by clicking on the links below: https://sites.google.com/view/bincangsastra-eng/beranda
We’d like to thank all participants for their contributions to the event – in particular the representatives of the universities, Dalang’s authors and translators, and Martin Nuh Hanan for editing our videos.
