The second Bali Emerging Writers Festival will kicked off its three-day long event on 25th of May at Serambi Arts Antida in Jl. Waribang, East Denpasar. The festival, the sibling event of the famed Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF), will feature 13 young emerging Indonesian writers, photographers, bloggers, artists,
art creators and activists. The festival’s events range from panel discussions, workshops, movie screening, theatrical performances and musical concerts.
“The participating writers have similar traits; they are young and passionately dedicated to their subjects of interest. We are trying to present a kaleidoscopic view of the island and Indonesian young talent. Some of them create their work in literary forms, some others express their thoughts through pictures and video,” UWRF’s community development manager, Kadek Purnami, said Thursday.
