About the festival
KEMBARA: n. Malay; to adventure; to journey; to wander
Adventures in the Artistic Landscape of Southeast Asia
Southeast Asia is a vast region of rich and complex cultures produced by centuries of migration. Home to nearly ten percent of the world’s population, the countries of Southeast Asia represent all of the world’s major religions, often evolved in ways specific to the region. Here, hybrid identities are the norm, as hundreds of different ethnic and linguistic groups intermingle and their histories overlap.
To capture the spirit of this fascinating and complex region, the Columbia Institute of Ideas and Imagination is proud to present KEMBARA, a series of events that brings together artists and thinkers from across Southeast Asia—people at the forefront of artistic, cultural and political change—and matches them with counterparts from France and beyond in combinations that will challenge and delight audiences.
