Ubud Festival unveils 2020 theme
From 28 October–1 November 2020, more than 150 writers, artists, activists and performers from over 30 countries converge for the 17th Festival (UWRF), to share stories and ideas exploring this year’s theme, Mulat Sarira.
The Bali festival runs across four days and evenings and delivers an eclectic program of events – from fiery conversations to intimate literary lunches, gripping live performances to hands-on workshops.
The theme is drawn from a Balinese-Hindu philosophy. Mulat Sarira, Self-Reflection, is the ability to reflect on oneself and understand the reasoning behind our actions.
“As egocentrism continues to cause human conflict, from discrimination to wars, disease and genocide,” commented UWRF Founder and Director Janet DeNeefe. “Balinese Hindus believe in looking at their own choices and behaviour, to contemplate these first before looking into those of others.”
