The work of the island’s local contemporary artists and writers provides a window into Bali beyond the beaches and swaying palms. Meet a young writer and literacy activist fostering a love of reading among Balinese children, a sculpture and installation artist sparking a return to eco-friendly materials, and a photographer documenting the conditions of Balinese living with mental illness.

Karya seniman dan penulis kontemporer lokal pulai ini menghadirkan gambaran ke Bali yang lebih luas, bukan hanya tentang pantai hingga pohon palem yang melambai. Temui seorang penulis muda dan pegiat sastra yang menumbuhkan kecintaan membaca di antara anak-anak Bali, seorang seniman patung dan instalasi yang menyuarakan kembalinya bahan ramah lingkungan, dan soerang fotografer yang mendokumentasikan kondisi orang Bali yang hidup dengan penyakit mental.
