On June 18, six Red Nose Foundation students (Harisal, Ida Laila, Rizal Herdiansyah, Kristina, Maulana Akbar, and Riski Fauji) and Red Nose’s Artistic Director Dedi Purwadi left Jakarta for Poland to take part in the Brave Kids international arts festival. The festival began on June 20 and will continue until July 13. In the festival, the six Red Nose kids will engage in various performances with numerous other kids from all over the world. The festival will be spread in four cities all across Poland. Red Nose will stay in Wroclaw, along with groups from Russia, Romania, Ghana, and Bosnia Herzegovina. During the duration of the festival, we will be posting stories and small updates written by Dedi and the kids on the blog.

Thursday, June 19: Day of Arrival
Greetings from Wroclaw, Poland!
Our trip so far has been a very pleasant one. Well, there was a little incident on the plane. Ida and Harisal threw up a little bit, but they are both fine now.
All in all, the kids are having a great time.
Ever since we were in Soekarno-Hatta Airport’s boarding lounge in Jakarta, many people asked about Red Nose Foundation, where we wanted to travel to and what for. The kids were clearly so amused by this situation, saying that they felt like celebrities as so many people looked at them and asked them questions.
