AIAA is a national network of organisations and individuals involved with Australia-Indonesia cultural exchange. AIAA's vision is: promoting Indonesian culture throughout Australia; creating new pathways for Indonesian artists to share their culture in Australia; and creating an open forum for cross-fertilisation of ideas between people of all disciplines involved with Indonesian culture. If you would like to see more Indonesian cultural activities in your area, get together with like minded people and share your ideas. By working together we can make it happen.
