Budaya Beat: New Image

Budaya Beat will be published in this new scroll up format instead of the usual e-magazine flipstyle. The pandemic engulfing the globe has severely affected AFS operations and limited our activities and events. As such, news from chapters and many areas of operation are scarce, necessitating a new way of presentation that is brief, informative and where possible, pictorial. The editorial team hopes readers will still enjoy the e-publication and catch up on developments at AFS while the pandemic outbreak is being brought under control.
