Ubud Writers & Readers Festival 2016

  Wed Oct 26th 2016 at 09:00 AM untill Sun Oct 30th 2016 05:00 AM
  Ubud Bali

The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is Southeast Asia's leading festival of words and ideas. The Festival celebrates extraordinary stories, amplifies brave voices, and tackles global issues through the lens of literature and the arts.

The Festival brings together a diverse mix of Indonesian and international writers, speakers, thinkers, artists, advocates, commentators and activists, to create a space for cross-cultural dialogue and connection.

We are proud of our continuing success in uniting global voices, and bringing Indonesian literature to the world.

The 13th UWRF will be held 26–30 October, 2016,  celebrating the theme Tat Tvam Asi or I am you, you are me. This powerful ideology is crucial to the collective identity of Indonesia – uniting people from incredibly diverse religious, ethnic, cultural and historical backgrounds to share common respect and understanding.

The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is the major annual project of the not-for-profit foundation, the Yayasan Mudra Swari Saraswati. It was first conceived of by Janet DeNeefe, co-founder of the Foundation, as a healing project in response to the first Bali bombing.
