BINUS Northumbria School of Design Participated at Popcon Asia 2017
BINUS Northumbria School of Design (BNSD) participated at Popcon Asia – a yearly pop culture event by Popcon Inc. that was dedicated to create awareness of, and appreciation for, creative and popular art forms.
Popcon Asia 2017 was held on 5-6 August 2017, at Jakarta Convention Center Hall B, Senayan, Jakarta. The event involved local artists, creative companies, local and international public figures, Badan Ekonomi Kreatif (Bekraf), as well as several creative-based knowledge institutions.
BNSD introduced its premium programs that were designed to prepare students for professional practices, in both corporate and entrepreneurial settings. Visitors were enthusiastic to consult and discuss with the staff at BNSD’s booth.
In addition to introducing the programs, BNSD’s participation in this event was also intended to showcase the students’ and alumni’s outstanding work. Some of the students and alumni whose work was shown were Koletta Anastasia and Jasmine Hanny Surkatty.
“Through this participation at Popcon Asia 2017, we hope we can introduce BNSD more widely to the society, and to let the world know that there is actually an internationally-certified creative-based knowledge institution in Indonesia that can help the students to gain a more global perspective of the field for an international career, and that is BNSD,” said Hariyanti Purnamasari, from the Sales Department of BINUS Northumbria School of Design.
