Welcome to 2016 – the year of the monkey, which is quite apt
for a village home to plenty – we trust it promises ample exciting
horizons and new adventures.
We certainly have stacks of exciting news to let you know about.
First, we're thrilled to release our 2016 dates and theme, and we
encourage you to start plotting your path to us now. We will fill
Ubud with a starry array of world thinkers and artists this October 26 - 30, 2016,
all celebrating the theme Tat Tvam Asi or 'I am you, you are me.'
Secondly, if you are an emerging writer based in Australasia, take
note! In partnership with the Australasian Association of Writing
Programs (AAWP) we are offering a once-in-a-lifetime Writers' Prize. More below.
Finally, our sibling event Bali Emerging Writers Festival will in
its sixth year enjoy an exciting makeover, now going by the name
Bali Emerging Voices Festival. With a focus more broadly on the
creative industry, it will take place in Sanur April 16 - 17.
