Targeted to attract between 750 and 1,000 participants, the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival is expected to attract writers, readers, artists, performers, translators, scholars, publishers, booksellers, film-makers and students.
The week long event, October 11-17, 2004, will feature panel discussions, workshops, performances, poetry, bi-lingual readings, exhibitions, book and magazine launches, bookstalls and musical events.
Centered in Bali's hillside artists' colony of Ubud, the festival will utilize a number of picturesque Balinese settings for its various event venues.
The stated mission of the inaugural Festival Event is to bring together writers, readers and other cultural workers to foster the exchange of information, inspiration and opportunities between cultural communities from around the world with special emphasis on cooperation between people in Australia and Indonesia. In addition to creating a greater public awareness and understanding of issues concerning writers and readers in the region the festival is also intended to provide opportunities for young and emerging writers to present their work to a larger public.
