For its debut, Jakarta International Photography Festival (JIPFest) exhibits works by more than 50 international artists under the theme of Identity. Through the Artist Talks program, public will have the opportunity to meet some of those artists and to hear stories behind their works. Through these meetings, we hope for photographers and the public to engage, exchange ideas and inspire each other.

The Artist Talks program is open for free to the public, although we recommend you to arrive early due to limited space of each venue. For more information, please contact us at or +62817-866-641.
