This activity will be held on 3-5 June 2022 at Hotel Koa D Surfer Canggu, Bali.
A Manager of Papua Plus Size Model Hunt and Artist Director of Timika Inside Festval Of Art, Alfo Smith explained that Papua Plus Size is one of the new breakthroughs at the Timika Inside Festival Of Art event which has been held twice.
“With this TIFA program, we generally represent Eastern Indonesia, more specifically the provinces of Papua and West Papua, to participate in a national event held in Bali with the title Bali Plus Size Festival,” he said, Wednesday (18/5/2022).
By participating in this event, it is to open the eyes of the public who feel less confident with their plus size body.
“We provide space, a platform, provide a place or space to be more confident to appear on stage with their respective natures and characteristics,” he said.
The model who has a weight ranging from 70 kilograms and above is currently doing various preparations to be able to appear optimally.
“We represent Eastern Indonesia, Papua and West Papua and will depart one day before the event. Our model consists of six people who will join participants from all over Indonesia, which currently has 26 participants (registered),” he explained.
He expects that the participation of these models can bring up other Papua Sizes who are brave and confident. “The hope is that next year there will be a Papua Size who is ready to be brave and confident to appear in front of many people with their respective superiorities” he concluded.
