It is an important base to be trusted and respected from creators in worldwide. “Dia.Lo.Gue” means “He/She-You-Me” in Betawi language aiming the crossing are to communicate artists, designers and public audiences.

Thanks to Mr, Hermawan’s strong support and efforts, UNKNOWN ASIA’s reputation is really high in Indonesia, and we were happy to hear that ubisum is likely to be a useful project alongside UNKNOWN ASIA. And some mentors were thinking about expanding into Japan to meet a lot of young Japanese creators.
Great supports by local influencers
Mr. Max Suriaganda of Whiteboard Journal kindly offered to be a media partner of ubisum, and Mr. Erastus Pramudita Radjimin suggested us to place ubisum leaflets at all of his ARTOTEL.
