Bali Through the Eyes of its Children

A Special Exhibition of Children's Art at the Bali Dynasty Resort April 20- June 20 2007 in Support of the East Bali Poverty Project.


The award-winning East Bali Poverty Project (EBPP) has earned world-wide praise for its life-changing success in improving the hygiene, nutrition and education of some of Bali's poorest people living in the shadows of sacred Mt. Agung. Working closely in support of community improvement projects identified and requested by the local populace, one of the cornerstones of EBPP's success has been its ability to impact the wider community through bringing clean water, schooling, and practical life skills to children who share both their enthusiasm and new skills with the families.

How the EBPP project has fundamentally changed the life of the people of East Bali is brilliantly told in a book written and illustrated by the children benefiting from the program entitled "The Art of Learning by Doing". [See: The Art of Learning by Doing]

Because of the popular success of the book and numerous requests to purchase art work by the children, a special 2-month long exhibition of paintings will be held at the Bali Dynasty Resort from April 20 Ė June 20, 2007.

The paintings on display share simple lessons learned on the value of a good healthy meal each day, precious potable water, and the value of group effort in overcoming problems facing their community. As the accompanying pictures taken from the exhibition demonstrate, the creativity and technique of the childrenís art shows a maturity beyond the years of these your painters. Perhaps most importantly, each painting provides a privileged glimpse into Balinese rural life in the isolated villages high on the slopes between Mt. Agung and Mt. Abang.

These young artists are the first generation in the history of their region to experience a curriculum which includes subjects such as health and hygiene, nutrition and organic farming, as well as art. Never fortunate enough to benefit from the tutoring of a qualified art teacher, the 42 paintings in the exhibition by the children of Cegi and Pengalusan schools represent both art and important documents recounting the improving quality of life in an area where hope was once the rarest commodity. As creative as the paintings themselves, the children created their own frames for each work using recycled materials ranging from empty milk cartons to local bamboo.

The official opening of the Exhibition will be at 4:00 p.m. on April 20, 2007 at the Bali Dynasty Resort's lobby featuring a dance performance by the children. Proceeds from the sales of the art will be used to support the continuing work of the East Bali Poverty Project.

The Exhibition closes on June 20, 2007.

No kitchen is complete without a refrigerator door bearing a painting by one of the children of East Bali!
