From literary luminaries to emerging stars, political insiders to human rights activists, award-winning filmmakers to social advocates, plus an undercover journalist, a beauty queen, a feminist icon, a World Poetry Slam champ, and more – the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is here.

With an ambitious program ranging from questions of human rights and human dignity, to the real and imagined ideas of home, the evolving world of journalism, and how we live, care, punish, and nourish in the 21st century, the UWRF is set to continue its role as Southeast Asia’s leading festival of words and ideas.

Extraordinary stories, brave voices. Be a part of UWRF 2016.
