The Lontar manuscript is a witness to the development of written culture in Bali and contains a variety of knowledge and experiences of people’s lives. Words connect us not only to each other in our everyday actions, but they have the ability to be messengers to places and people unknown. In this session, you will learn how to write Balinese script on palm leaves and gain a deeper understanding of the cultural heritage of Bali. Come along and learn how to record, inscribe and share knowledge in a form that you can pass on to others, all through the ancient means of lontar manuscripts.

Naskah Lontar menjadi saksi perkembangan budaya tulis di Bali dan memuat berbagai pengetahuan dan pengalaman hidup masyarakat. Kata-kata menghubungkan kita tidak hanya satu sama lain dalam tindakan kita sehari-hari, tetapi memiliki kemampuan untuk menjadi pembawa pesan ke tempat-tempat dan orang-orang yang tidak dikenal. Pada sesi ini, Anda akan belajar bagaimana menulis aksara Bali di atas daun lontar dan mendapatkan pemahaman yang lebih dalam tentang warisan budaya Bali. Datang dan pelajari cara mencatat, menorehkan, dan berbagi pengetahuan dalam bentuk yang dapat Anda berikan kepada orang lain, semuanya melalui sarana naskah lontar kuno.

Includes snacks and coffee or tea

This session is presented in Bilingual
