(1/18/2010)

The 2010 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival theme has been announced: Bhinneka Tunggal Ika : Harmony in Diversity.

The theme for the world famous annual gathering of literary types in Ubud, Bali, is anticipated to open a hot debates on religious dogmas, political ideologies and national allegiances that bitterly divide the world. The questions of universalism and shared humanity will be addressed alongside issues of human rights and the fate of marginalized and disenfranchised communities.

Organizers ask: Why, in a time when the world has never been so informed and aware of diversity and difference, do we see fear, intolerance and the force of monoculturalism on the rise? The deliberation on diversity will continue in Ubud in October 2010 in an effort to unearth a dialogue on living harmoniously with the natural environment, focusing on global warming and warring.

This year the festival will welcome writers from Bosnia, Cuba, Malta, Argentina and Iran: all voices of those seldom heard. Enter also the new-wave of young Muslim spoken word performers who use hip-hop to dispel misconceptions of Islam alongside some of the hottest poets in the region. Emerging and established authors from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Americas will once again take centre stage in four days of conversation, readings, panels, workshops and performances in breathtaking venues across Ubud.

With the festival now in its seventh year, the feasting, which has become part of the event, continues in Ubud's elegant hotels and magnificent homes with a menu of literary lunches, dinners and cocktail parties in a celebration of words, wine and song. There will also be workshops that teach the "how-to's" of writing from poetry to prose, from journalism to memoir.

Pencil in the dates and stay tuned: Ubud Readers and Writers Festival Ubud, Bali October 6-10, 2010.
