Casa Luna and the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival (UWRF) will host “Voices from Coastal Communities” - a Lensa Masyarakat Nusantara (LMN) photography exhibition, showcasing 70 extraordinary images from their first project with the East Bali Marine Conservation Program.

Based on Photovoices International, the exhibition presents a powerful visual essay from the coastal areas of Amed and Tulamben, in East Bali.

Fishermen, farmers, housewives, dive guides and young people have taken the photographs. Camera and photography training were provided by Lensa Masyarakat Nusantara (LMN) with the aim to record important issues in the communities, such as the environment, traditions, culture, and the strengths and challenges of the community.

The East Bali Marine Conservation Program is a project of Lensa Masyarakat Nusantara along with the Coral Reef Alliance and Yayasan Reef Check Indonesia. Their combined focus is to increase communities’ sensitivity to their surroundings and consequent problem mapping through a visual learning process.

“Casa Luna is intimately connected with the international Ubud Writers & Readers Festival. Both organizations believe in the power of storytelling and promoting the unique voice of the Indonesian the people” said Janet DeNeefe, owner of Casa Luna, and Founder & Director of the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival. “Our commitment is to provide an ongoing platform for Balinese communities, and human rights issues, to assist in the betterment of lives.”

The goal of the exhibition is to create important dialogue locally, as well as in the broader community, and to raise funds from photo sales for future projects.

The exhibition will open at 4:00 pm on July 24 and run until August 6, 2016, at Casa Luna.

The exhibition is supported by Casa Luna Ubud, Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, The Body Shop Indonesia, Australian Consulate General Bali, Yayasan Reef Check Indonesia, Coral Reef Alliance, MPIG Sea Salt Amed, Amed Coastal Society and the Yayasan Mudra Swari Saraswati.

The photographs will be on sale and all proceeds go to funding community projects.
