With this in mind, Asosiasi Kreatif Ubud will be holding an exhibition to engage with this idea. 10 artists, of diverse backgrounds, have attempted to reinterpret Buana from their own perspective. This exhibition will feature 10 works that reinterpret nature, mankind and the relation between both of them.
Meet the artists on our exhibition opening night at Littletalks Ubud, and get to know each member of @aku_id Asosiasi Kreatif Ubud (Ubud Creative Association). Buana Art Exhibition will be open for public for 1 week, come and support local artists!
Bicara tentang Buana, tidak melulu bicara tentang pemandangan dengan keindahan gunung atau laut, hamparan sawah atau bentangan pantai. Obrolan-obrolan tentang Buana tidak akan bisa lepas dari entitas-entitas yang ada di dalamnya: alam, manusia dan relasi antara keduanya.
Asosiasi Kreatif Ubud kembali mengadakan pameran bersama untuk merespon hal tersebut. 10 ilustrator, dengan latar belakang yang beda-beda, memaknai kembali Buana melalui perspektifnya masing-masing. Pameran ini akan menampilkan 10 karya hasil penggambaran ulang alam, manusia dan relasi keduanya.
Mari hadir di malam pembukaan Buana Art Exhibition di Littletalks Ubud dan cari tahu mengenai Asosiasi Kreatif Ubud. Pameran akan berlangsung selama 1 minggu, ayo datang dan dukung seniman seniman lokal!

(Across Blanco Renaissance Museum)
Daniel Elber met Ketut 13 years ago in Ubud, when he was on a sabbatical from his bank job in Switzerland. He was interested why people in this family oriented Balinese culture had to beg to feed their families. So he went up to Muntigunung, visited the area and based on the impressions he got, decided to organize help!
He formed an association in Switzerland to raise funds and started to plan the development of this area together with local partners.
The presentation will show how everything started, what kind of strategic decisions they have taken, how they are solving the water problem, what they implemented to create jobs and opportunities, why and how they do health education and many more things.
