Saturday 5 June 2021 - 6pm AEST -  (3pm WIB) - Zoom
AIA Zoom Cocktails session.  
Guest Speaker: Herald van der Linde speaking on his book "Jakarta - A history of a misunderstood city" 

Tracing the evolution of this Javanese city from pre-colonial times to the bustling metropole it is today, Jakarta reveals how the new set of challenges confronting the city today- congestion, poverty, floods, land subsidence- mirror the struggles it had to face in the past. It is ultimately, also, a love letter to the city written by one of its long-term residents to his adopted home.
