The project is planned before the Covid-19 outbreak in Asia, it should be held entirely in 2020 but because of the restriction during the pandemic we can only do the event in Vietnam and publication of the book in 2020. We will continue the project in 2021, and we hope to extend the cooperation between Indonesia Dramatic Reading Festival, Yayasan Umar Kayam and Japan Foundation for the future development of the project.
