In­done­sian cul­tural cel­e­bra­tion in Can­ning­ton.

CAN­NING­TON Town Hall is set to be en­gulfed in In­done­sian cul­ture as Ko­mu­ni­tas Cinta Berkain In­done­sia WA (KCBIWA) cel­e­brates its sec­ond an­niver­sary.

The world­wide or­gan­i­sa­tion’s WA branch, es­tab­lished to cel­e­brate and con­serve In­done­sian fab­rics and fash­ion, will gather to toast its sec­ond year as a club from 5.30pm to 9pm on Septem­ber 1.

KCBIWA chair­woman Laksmi Hayes said the night would feature an ar­ray of In­done­sian cul­ture, in­clud­ing a live band and DJ, singers, tra­di­tional dancers and an eth­nic fab­ric fash­ion show fea­tur­ing a de­signer from East Java.

“There will be some danc­ing and some con­tem­po­rary dances, in­clud­ing a line dance com­bined with a tra­di­tional dance, but every­one will be wear­ing eth­nic fab­ric; it’s a way to show our fab­rics,” she said,

“Rather than walk­ing up and down aisles on a cat­walk, we are show­ing it through dancers.”

Ms Hayes said the club took it upon them­selves to be ac­tive in the com­mu­nity and were al­ways keen to lend a help­ing hand where need be.

“We are try­ing to go to com­mu­ni­ties and if they have a char­ity event, we are will­ing to come and per­form for free,” she said.

“We are very in­volved ev­ery Tues­day to feed the home­less; we have a very ac­tive so­cial team.”

Cul­tural ties... Jo Hug, Maria Kun­tjoro, Laksmi Hayes and Dawi Pon­daag.
