JFFE will be a hybrid online and offline event and will be held from 16 - 18 November 2021. The hybrid event will be streamed via Zoom through with registration.


The meeting room functions as an online discussion and strategic platform to develop strategies and mitigation tactics for organizing festivals in Yogyakarta and globally, which include resilience and sustainability in holding cultural arts festivals in the midst of the pandemic and in its eventual post-pandemic (endemic) era.


There are several main issues in this discussion; preparing a mitigation strategy to face the transition from epidemic to endemic, preparing and managing the environment as one of the important pillars in sustainable development and strengthening the capacity of Jogja Festivals and festivals as event-based for tourism and a platform of creative economy.


This event’s purpose is to gather opinions from various resource persons and invited participants regarding festival policies in the Special Region of Yogyakarta. The result of this program is aimed to be used as public policy recommendations for governmental stakeholders.


Speakers and invitees are expected to share knowledge and experiences and discuss how the festival, the government, and the private sector can support one another regarding the organizing of festivals.


Performance art is one of the important key factors for festivals in Yogyakarta in engaging with the public. During the pandemic era, festivals lost an opportunity to make a live offline performance, where online performances then became one of the ways for the public to enjoy and be part of the festivals.


One-on-One Meeting functions as a strategic meeting space for stakeholders to meet, connect, and collaborate with more than 30 festivals in Yogyakarta. Through it, you can meet up to nurture relations and create collaborative opportunities with Yogyakarta's numerous festivals.

JFFE 2021 One-on-One Meeting will be held on Wednesday, 17 November 2021, from 9AM until 3PM through Zoom. Register through to learn from and create meaningful synergy with festivals in Yogyakarta.
