Embassy Jakarta Celebrates the 4th with Innovation, Social Media, Makers

On June 25, Embassy Jakarta hosted the USA’s 238th birthday celebration with a reception for hundreds of important contacts and media.  With “American Innovation” as the theme, the Embassy celebrated American leadership and ingenuity in food, education, space exploration, and consumer technology with interactive booths and maker spaces.  A partnership between the Embassy and private sector sponsors/donors, the reception provided guests with immersive American experiences that allowed them to engage with social media; snap selfies with iconic American images and characters; and enjoy “maker” approaches in cooking, design, and reusable resources.
