A Traveling Companion, the Indonesian Youth Conference, and PKN St. Louis at the CAM

In 2009, Nikki Mansel met a tiny bear during a trip. Since then, it has turned into her most trusted traveling companion, and as you'll see in her presentation (from PKN Jersey Vol. 1), they've been sharing adventures in quite a few countries.

Here are details on this presentation by Alanda Kariza, presented in Indonesian at PKN Jakarta Vol. 7.

Indonesian Youth Conference (IYC) is an activity planned and organized by youth, and aimed at gathering Indonesia youth to share problems and ideas, enhance their awareness of current issues, and convince the public that youth voices must be heard and taken seriously. IYC consists of two activities that are intertwined with each other: 1. A forum that invites 33 young people aged 15 to 21 years from all over Indonesia to represent their respective provinces at this event. They are expected to be actively involved in communities and networks, respectively, are determined to make a change towards a better Indonesia, and want to start a movement or project in their community. 2. A festival, made up of organized seminars and workshops that can be visited by anyone by buying tickets. Seminar sessions and workshops at the festival are more general, covering a wide range of issues. It invites experts, professionals, government officials, and youth achievement to talk about law and governance, politics, culture, creative industries, information technology, environment, education, health, activism, social entrepreneurship, as well as journalism and media.

We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with the poster above for this past Friday's PKN Seoul Vol. 12, which marked a re-launch of the series -- it had been dormant for a few years. Also uploaded are posters for tonight's PKN Fresno Vol. 16 and for next month's PKN Concepcion Vol. 7.

Today we point out this photo gallery [Facebook], which covers last month's PKN St. Louis Vol. 9, held at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM). Take note that PKN St. Louis Vol. 10 is set for September 27.

We kick off the week with tonight's (July 23) PKN Fresno Vol. 16 and PKN San Jose Vol. 7. Tomorrow, you can look forward to PKN Rockford Vol. 2 and PKN Halifax Vol. 11.
