Inside Indonesia


Visit their website, and/or follow them on Twitter

Inside Indonesia was set up in Melbourne by the Indonesian Resources and Information Program (IRIP) in 1983. This was a time when the mainstream media in Australia included very little information about Indonesia. The diverse group of academics and activists involved in the establishment of Inside Indonesia wanted to provide an antidote to that situation. In particular, they wanted to provide information about the growing numbers of people and organisations in Indonesia who were involved in attempts to bring about social and political change amidst the very repressive conditions at that time under the Suharto regime.

About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
