If you are in Bali this month, you definitely don't want to miss the 33rd Annual Bali Arts Festival. There are an estimated 15,000 Balinese artists performing...not to mention more than 1,500 participants from 7 different countries, such as the US, Japan, Australia, Malaysia and India...as well as 16 neighboring provinces of Indonesia including: Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Maluku, Kalimantan and Nusa Tenggara.
The festival's purpose to is “maintain harmony and prevent conflicts by nurturing universal values from different cultures”. Read more about this festival at The Jakarta Post and I plan to go myself, weather permitting with my little one, so I'll have more pictures to come later this month! EXCITING!
