Ubud Writers and Readers Festival
Ubud Writers and Readers Festival is the international major project of the Ubud-based Mudra Swari Saraswati Foundation. It was first conceived of by Janet De Neefe, co-founder of the Foundation, as a response to counteract the damaging effect of the first Bali bombing.
The first Festival took place in 2004. Since its founding, however, the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival has grown and developed into an internationally recognized forum that fosters a global conversation and provides a platform for writers from Indonesia and around the world to share their ideas and perspectives on current issues.
Suka-Duka: Compassion & Solidarity is the 2009 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival theme.
