Arts have long been recognized as a powerful tool for bringing communities together and fostering connection. Through various forms of artistic expression, individuals can engage in shared experiences, develop interpersonal skills, and contribute to the well-being of their communities.
By embracing individuals’ unique abilities and challenges, these organizations uplift individuals and build community. Art has the power to create friendships, break down biases, and initiate new conversations.
Aligned with BaliSpirit Festival 2024 theme, “Come Together”, Bali Conference hopes that during challenging periods, it is often essential for individuals and communities to come together for support, healing, and growth. Coming together as a community can create a support network that offers strength and resilience. Art can transport individuals to different places, offering a reprieve from difficult circumstances. Art reminds us that we are not alone and that we share a universal human experience.
Bali Conference is a music and arts education and community program organized as part of BSF. It is a part of the broader mission of the Festival, which is to promote cultural exchange and community development through yoga, music, dance, and other artistic and educational programs. The conference features presentations and performances by BSF musicians, scholars, and cultural experts from around the world, and provides a platform for dialogue and exchange of ideas on the importance of preserving and celebrating diverse cultural heritage through music.
The Bali conference will explore the ancient musical traditions of different cultures, their influence on modern music, and the challenges of preserving and reviving these traditions in the present day. It could also examine the role of music in ancient societies, its connection to other cultural traditions and practices, and its impact on the identity and social fabric of communities.

Started in 2016, Bali Conference was initially founded as BaliSpirit Festival’s World Music Conference to introduce, integrate and iterate the importance of bridging cultures and an exchange of knowledge of the arts. Over a hundred art students in Bali have been part of Bali conference and now in its fifth year (2024), Bali Conference wants to expand as an Art Conference to accommodate the knowledge-sharing of art and culture’s importance between Balinese youths and Indonesia’s art experts.
