Like many Festivals past, this year’s theme is drawn from a Balinese Hindu philosophy. ‘Jagadhita’ is the individual pursuit of universal harmony and prosperity as one of life’s primary goals. Yet harmony in our personal lives still eludes many. Join these diverse creatives as they unfold the eternal quest for happiness.

Seperti festival-festival yang telah diselenggarakan sebelumnya, tema tahun ini diambil dari filosofi Hindu Bali. ‘Jagadhita’ adalah upaya individu untuk mencapai keselarasan dan kesejahteraan universal sebagai salah satu tujuan utama kehidupan. Namun, keharmonisan dalam kehidupan personal kita masih memiliki banyak aspek. Bergabunglah dengan beragam orang-orang kreatif ini saat mereka membuka pintu menuju kebahagiaan yang abadi.
