KAMPOT WRITERS & READERS FESTIVAL

"After the Deluge"


3-7 NOVEMBER 2016

KAMPOT, CAMBODIA - KAMPOT CITY

"There’s something about Kampot: it’s filled with the magic that stories are made of. Whether it’s the swollen river snaking through the town, the smell of pepper in the air, the art being revived in the yellowed buildings -- the place always made me want to write. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Now there is a festival where people who love words can gather in the place that inspires them. This inaugural festival opens the doors to something magical. It’s the Kampot Writers’ and Readers’ Festival."

-- Laura Jean McKay, author of Holiday in Cambodia and KWRF festival friend

FEATURED SESSIONS

"Let us sow the seeds of peace and kindness through literature and art. A festival where many people can come together to celebrate and share in the highest aspects of humanity. Then let us celebrate Kampot, the beautiful centre of so many artistic activities and so too, Cambodia with her ancient and wonderful cultural heritage.”

--Catherine Louise Geach (Founder, Kampot Traditional Music School for Orphaned and Disabled Children Khmer Cultural Development Institute, Cambodia)

Ubud Writers & Readers Festival

Ubud Writers & Readers Festival

Held annually in Ubud, Bali’s artistic and cultural heartland, the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival has become Southeast Asia’s largest and most renowned cultural and literary event. The mission of Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is to create a world class festival that celebrates extraordinary stories and amplifies brave voices; tackles global issues and big ideas. We are proud of our continuing success in bringing Indonesian and international writers together on a world stage and creating a space for conversation and connection across cultural divides. The next Festival will be held October 28 – November 1, 2015, and will celebrate the theme 17,000 Islands of Imagination. The theme is also that chosen by the Frankfurt Book Fair (to be held mid-October) for this year’s Guest of Honour Nation, Indonesia. The Festival has elected to present a united front in order to best showcase the rich literature and arts of the country to the world. The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is the major annual project of the not-for-profit foundation, the Yayasan Mudra Swari Saraswati. It was first conceived of by Janet DeNeefe, co-founder of the Foundation, as a healing project in response to the first Bali bombing.
