Wisma Jerman Open House 2022: Wieder vor Ort erleben (mengalami kembali Wisma Jerman secara langsung)
After two years of online only activities due to the pandemic, finally we held Open House by offline on Sunday, August 21st, 2022. This annual event aims to introduce German culture, education and economic cooperation to the wider Surabaya community and/or those who are in Surabaya area and surroundings. In this event, the visitors have an opportunity to learn first-hand about Wisma Jerman’s activities, enjoy delicious and typical German food, traditionally produced local ice cream, cake, coffee and tea and have a great time together with the Wisma Jerman team. Whether beginner or advanced German speaker, the Open House provides an interesting experience and memorable moments for everyone.
For this event we were happy to collaborate with Komunitas Mata Hati (the social community of disabilities young people) who performed an acoustic music concert that captured the audience’s attention. Besides music, almost 400 attendees were entertained by a group of dancers from Universitas Negeri Surabaya. The group performed a self-created dance that was modeled after traditional German folklore dances.
Adding to the fun atmosphere of the event, Schnupperkurs (a short course in German language) offered the chance to get to know some first words and expressions, WJ Rally Quiz about Germany and Wisma Jerman, photo booth, work and study consultation in Germany (AMIF), economic talks with EKONID, DAAD presentation, student course video competition, German cinema and provided opportunities for the guests to win interesting gifts from sponsorship like Cheers mineral water, TS Artotel, Viva Cosmetics and Kahf or even a voucher for a free language course.
We would like to say thank you to everybody who was involved with the two events for their support, and we look forward to welcoming you again at our upcoming events.
