2018 venue:
Njana Tilem Museum

This will be our second night time event, this time in the grounds of the incredible Njana Tilem Museum in Ubud. Bali is known for the excellence of its wood carving, to which this museum is dedicated. Another perfect venue to bring TEDxUbud to life.

Tucked away at the back of Mas village, Njana Tilem Museum presents selected pieces of its two great historical master carvers: Ida Bagus Njana and Ida Bagus Tilem.

Njana and Tilem, father and son, each revolutionized Balinese carving. Njana embraced the change to modernity with simple carving lines that depicted the Balinese people’s daily life. Tilem carried on the transformation by using the naturally distorted form of wood to express human emotions. Every piece displayed is a masterpiece of craftsmanship to rival any international museum collection—all set in a monumental setting reminiscent of past Majapahit architecture.

TEDxUbud has a strong and fast-growing following in Indonesia. A group of 500 change-makers, innovators, thinkers, creatives, cultural leaders & social pioneers witness a back-to-back full evening schedule of talks, performances, and several interactive surprises. And, although taking place in Bali, our talks will be translated into multiple languages by the TED Translators Program online.

Join us for a full day of witnessing the ideas that are changing the world. Meet like-minded and curious people. Learn new things. Be inspired.
