#1 Eco-Friendly Ogoh-Ogoh Festival 2020 at GWK Cultural Park
Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park is more than just a cul- tural park. This world-renowned venue also acts as a window of the world into Bali and Indonesia. It is seen as a gateway for visitors, a one-stop destination for those who wish to learn and immerse oneself in the cultures and traditions of both Bali and Indonesia. In its efforts to showcase both the island and the country in its entirety, GWK Cultural Park continues to strive to present interesting cultural and artistic events to support the preservation and development of cultural arts in Indonesia and Bali in particular.
In March and April this year, GWK Cultural Park will showcase one of the island’s most interesting events; the #1 Eco-Friendly Ogoh-Ogoh Festival 2020. GWK is collaborating with one of the initiators of the Eco-Friendly Ogoh-Ogoh movement here in Bali; Putu Marmar Hera- yukti for the festival which will be held from March 20 to April 5, 2020. The vision of this event is very closely related to the concept behind the Garuda Wisnu Kencana, which is also seen as the saviour of the environment and the world.
The #1 Eco-Friendly Ogoh-Ogoh Festival 2020 will be held alongside a series of activities including the Ogoh-Ogoh Mini Race which will feature participants from all over Bali. There will also be a Demo and Workshop for the Making of the Eco-Friendly Ogoh-Ogoh which will be open to visitors.
A large eco-friendly Ogoh-Ogoh which stands at the height of 6 feet will also be displayed at the park throughout the duration of the festival.
The highlight of the #1 Eco-Friendly Ogoh-Ogoh Festival 2020 at GWK Cultural Park will take place on April 4, 2020 with a spectacular folk-culture presentation called “Bhakti Tejaning Pertiwi” which tells the story of human service to the motherland in the form of collab- orative dance, music and theatrical art performed by 1000 artists.
GWK Cultural Park is one of Bali’s most iconic landmarks. It sprawls across 60 hectares and is home to the impressive GWK Statue – the Hindu God Wisnu who sits atop his mount, the mythical eagle, Ga- ruda. The park provides a tantalizing glimpse into Bali’s fascinating heritage through intriguing cultural performances, legendary folklore tales, immense sculptures, and dramatic cinematic presentation. Enjoy panoramic island views as you explore the park on foot or by Segway. Indulge in Indonesian heritage cuisine, immerse yourself in a land steeped in mythology or plan your next big event in one of GWK’s epic venues such as Plaza Wisnu, the Lotus Pond, Festival Park, Amphitheater, Indraloka Park, Tirta Amertha and so on.
