Intercultural Internship Program
Marie from Germany is Jogja InterKultur’s first intern. During three months, from February to April 2017, the 18-year old high school graduate is exploring her creative potential in several workshops and studios in Jogjakarta and – of course – her intercultural abilities, too ;)
Her first task was to design a T-Shirt for fashion outlet Jokja Apparel (https://www.facebook.com/JokjaApparel/): from drawing and printing to sewing and marketing the product. Since the design turned out to be a sweet orang-utan face, our animal-loving trainee at the same time wants now to initiate a donation campaign for orang-utans in Sumatra with the help of COP (http://orangutanprotection.com)
Next, Marie started to learn video editing with the crew of Survive Garage (http://www.survivegarage.com).ATogether with students from the Indonesian Institute of Arts (http://isi.ac.id) she is now exploring the city to produce a video on hidden trails and unknown locations, which could later become an alternative route for socially interested tourists coming to Jogja.
Last, but not least, Marie gets a basic journalistic training, while writing a weekly blog (http://jogja-interkultur.com/blog/) on all the new, funny, interesting and sometimes strange events happening to her.
For everybody interested in a similar experience, Jogja Interkultur is planning to offer a regular Intercultural Internship Program by next year – so stay in touch!
