= Ubud Writers & Readers Festival


About The UWRF

The 2010 Citbank - Ubud Writers & Readers Festival theme is ‘Bhinneka Tunggal Ika : Harmony in Diversity’, the Indonesian national motto originating from the Sutasoma, an ancient Javanese text which advocates respect between all people, across religious, ethnic and social divides. From October 6 - 10, the brightest global writers will come together to debate the issues that divide and unite us, in a celebration of stories and voices.

We will welcome writers from China, Malta, Djibouti, Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Burma, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, France, Bosnia, Turkey, South Africa, Australia, the UK, Ireland, the US and Canada, and from across the Indonesian archipelago.

The Citbank - Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is the major project of the not-for-profit foundation, the Yayasan Mudra Swari Saraswati. It was first conceived of by Janet De Neefe, co-founder of the Foundation, as a healing project in response to the first Bali bombing, with the first event held in 2004.

The Citibank - Ubud Writers & Readers Festival mission is to create a world class literary event that brings together diverse Indonesian and international voices for dialogue and exchange in order to:

share stories, ideas and their craft in the spirit of cross-cultural understanding;
foster greater international awareness and understanding of Indonesian literary cultures;
create opportunities for Indonesian writers to present their work to a global audience; and
expose Indonesian audiences to the work of international writers.
