Rotary Denpasar, working through their [Bali School Kids Project]  are coordinating the participation of 210 primary school students in the Festival. The children have created 210 hand-made coconut bowls to promotes the sustainable use of traditional materials.

The Festival organizers said, “We are thrilled to work with children who are so keen to participate in arts activities like drawing, installations, photography, painting, story telling, kulkul, okokan music and games that celebrate and honor the Subak.”

Christine has exhibited in solo shows in regional art galleries in Australia, and participated in artist in residences in Australia, France and Indonesia.
