Event Details

Ubud Writers & Readers Festival (UWRF) this year’s theme is Mulat Sarira or Self Reflection. UWRF celebrates national and international emerging and established writers, artists, and activists who delve into the theme across many landscapes.

The Festival moves forward with the theme drawn from a Balinese-Hindu philosophy, Mulat Sarira, interpreted in English as Self-Reflection. The Festival will explore self-reflection, cultural introspection, and human rights: examining who we are, what unites and divides us, and what drives our actions.

“We have been shaped by a new normal and, with it, human values of care, co-operation and compassion have been brought to the forefront, while we are left contemplating to which parts of normal do we wish to return?” commented Janet DeNeefe, UWRF Founder and Director. “The theme invites compelling conversations from literary luminaries, emerging writers, activists, academics and journalists, to discuss the importance of self-reflection and how the power of storytelling can connect us across cultures.”
