The Nusa Dua Fiesta (NDF) – once known as the Nusa Dua Festival – will be held again November 2-5, 2012 within the Nusa Dua Complex operated by the Bali Tourism Development Corporations (BTDC).
The four-day event has adopted the theme of “Segara Lelangunan” to encourage the enjoyment and preservation of the seas surrounding Bali. BTDC aims to increase understanding among the public of the need to preserve the ocean’s ecosystem in order maintain the sustainability of sea tourism.
The chairman of the NDF, Id Bagus Abdi, will also serve to promote a positive tourism image of Bali to the world, demonstrating that the island is safe, secure and well worth visiting.
To mark this year’s Nusa Dua Fiesta a new monument will be installed at Nusa Dua in the form of a 17-meter statue of Kresna and Arjuna intended to become the mascot of the BTDC Nusa Dua complex.
As in years past, the Nusa Dua Fiesta will spotlight Balinese culture, including the presentation of two colossal traditional dancing art performances.
Plans also call for the planting of a new coral reef just off shore from the BTDC complex.
A number of international caliber musicians are expected to attend Nusa Dua to participate in an international musical collaboration led by Indonesian musicologist Franky Raden held in conjunction with NDF.
In keeping with the ocean theme, the Nusa Dua Fiesta 2012 will host an exhibition of underwater photography.
Also forming part of a crowded schedule of events, the Fiesta will host a cooking competition – Bali Culinary Challenge 2012 and a workshop on sustainable seafood organized by the Indonesian Chefs Association (ICA).
