A large contingent of local and international artists will join forces in Bali's first Art Festival for Peace to be held April 6-8 at Denpasar's Art Center. The event will include dance, music, theatre, puppet performances, seminars, and workshops.
The Art Festival for Peace is intended to serve as a forum of focus for a shared vision of peace among people who care about art and peace, for religious groups that have a vision for peace, and for governments and private institutes with concern for developing arts and peace. The event will represent an opportunity for artists of different faiths and background to join forces in creating a positive force within the art community to show that existing differences within the community need not create problems.
An opening ceremony and dinner on April 6th will feature collaborations on the Legong Jobong dance. The next day, Sunday, is dedicated to family activities with a children's painting competition and performances for and by the community's young folk. On Sunday evening, a Chinese Barong Sai lion dance will be performed with ritual songs offered and shared by Christian Protestants, Catholics, Moslems, Buddhists and Hindus. On the final day of the festival, April 8, workshops and seminars will be held including the presentation of new dances and a puppet performance.
