Since the WTF18 euphoria is still preeminent, we would like to once again salute our much-respected president, Mr. Joko Widodo for showing his continuing support of the local creative industry. WE THE FEST 2018 welcomed back President Jokowi on their last day, July 22nd. This year, he watched the performance of White Shoes and The Couples Company along with music critique Adib Hidayat and Head of Indonesian Creative Economic Agency Triawan Munaf.
As expected, his visit was greeted with many visitors who wanted to shake his hands and take selfies. Moreover, the president also took his time to come to local brand Monstore’s booth and looked at some items, as it is shown on their Instagram. Monstore is one of several WTF’s local brand partners for their official merchandises. Hope to spot him again in a bigger and better WTF next year.
