The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival
24 – 28 October
The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival returns with extraordinary stories, amplified brave voices and global issues through the lens of literature and the arts. Bringing together a diverse mix of Indonesian and international writers, speakers, thinkers, artists, advocates, commentators and activists from over 30 countries, this year’s festival celebrates the theme “Jagadhita, the world we create”, and is a place where artists and audiences alike can discuss shared inspirations, ideas and concerns. Across five days, the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival delivers an eclectic program of events – from fiery conversations to intimate literary lunches, gripping live performances to hands-on workshops. 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. www.ubudwritersfestival.com
