Invitation to the ASEAN Blogger Phase 1, 7-11 August 2017,

Bali, Indonesia

The Rojak Projek was selected by the 'Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia' and granted the honour of representing Malaysia in the 'ASEAN Blogger Phase 1' hosted by Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology in the Aston Kuta Hotel & Residence, Bali, from 7 – 11th August 2017.

As an online platform that is focused on bridging the ASEAN community together, ASEAN Blogger is very much invested in the idea of spreading the message of unity in diversity. This is similar to The Rojak Projek’s goal in creating a positive message of love and unity among the diverse Malaysian community. Through this event, both The Rojak Projek and other ASEAN representatives were able to come together in solidarity towards building a more unified ASEAN.

 

During the event, Akhyari Hananto from Good News from Indonesia emphasized the importance of countering negative news, hoax and media distrust by creating just as much positive news and spreading it.

 

Ms. Widia Librianti, a Technical Officer from the ASEAN Secretariat also expressed the importance of using social media as a powerful tool to build an informative and open platform that can promote effective cooperation between fields of culture and information in order to enhance mutual understanding and solidarity among the ASEAN community.

Mr. Ermillian Heriachandra M.A however brought up an additional point that it is best to create understanding, not just awareness in social media. Creating understanding is better when it comes from those who know less, not know more.
 

Despite not having any bloggers in the team, The Rojak Projek was able to share to the few a little about their journey of promoting a positive message of love and unity in a time where there is a lot of negativity in the local Malaysian news. The Rojak Projek does this through creating unique portraits of Malaysian people using a variety of local Malaysian food. Pictures of the ‘conceptual food artwork’ are then taken and shared on social media in order to connect people to each other and bring them together.


It isn’t just about food or art or sharing positive vibes. The Rojak Projek’s aim is to transform the lens of society by producing creative content that builds not just cultural awareness but an understanding of the Malaysian culture that enables people to shift their perspectives ‘from colour-blindness to colour-embracing’.


Our hope is to empower all Malaysians to rise up and fight for our beautiful Malaysia by
creating a positive culture of love and unity in amidst negativity.


We hope to continue our journey with ASEAN with much Malaysian love.
