Meta’s Top Picks in Bandung, Yogayakarta, and Jakarta from 2 – 9 January

Meta is a freelance arts administrator and a traveling yogi. She spent 16 years of her life as an art practitioner and the last few years as an arts administrator. Her first love in the arts is dance. She left her heart on the stage but her heart has since expanded and now shares this love with all the other art forms. Her other big love is people and culture; travel continues to connect her with humans of this beautiful earth. Here are some of her picks for the next week!
