Support our 20th Anniversary Fundraiser

This year—2023—marks an important milestone for Ubud Writers & Readers Festival.

For two decades, the festival has gathered readers and writers from across Indonesia and the world in Bali’s cultural heartland. What happens there, amid the humid, tropical jungle, on festival stages and in book signing queues, separated from the circadian rhythms of regular life, is nothing short of magic.

Stories are shared. Memories are made. For a singular moment in time, all that matters is you and your curiosity.

Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation, and we rely heavily on the goodwill and generosity of our partners and donors to make each year a success.

We invite you to help us write our next chapter by donating to our 20th Anniversary festival fund.

We want to raise AUD 10,000 by 18 October 2023, the proceeds of which go towards bringing your favourite writers to the festival, sending visiting authors to local schools, developing our emerging writers’ program, and other initiatives which we are busily planning and hope to unveil soon.
