Welcome to the website of the Anglo-Indonesian Society. We are an independent, non-political Society dedicated to fostering friendship and understanding between Britain and Indonesia. We assist with strengthening cultural, educational and social relations between our two countries.
Our Members are people who share our interest in Indonesia and the aims of the Society. They include Britons who have worked, lived or travelled in Indonesia and Indonesians who are living in the UK, whether studying or working.
The Society arranges a programme of events for our Members throughout the year. This programme includes talks, social gatherings, outings and educational events. The centrepiece is a series of monthly evening lectures given by different expert speakers on a wide variety of topics to do with Indonesia. The lectures are usually held at the Indonesian Embassy in Great Peter Street and are open free of charge to our Members and their guests. Refreshments are served and there is an opportunity for our Members to meet and talk together before and after the lecture.
In addition, the Society seeks to develop links with the Indonesian community in Britain and with Indonesian students studying at British educational institutions. The Society holds an annual Careers Evening for the Indonesian students.
The Society sends out a monthly newsletter to its Members in which we keep our Members informed about our programme, upcoming Indonesian events in Britain and news of the Society. The Society also works with other groups and institutions putting on Indonesia-related cultural and educational events in Britain.
