BAF of this year has central theme namely Sudamala: Comprehending Purity of Conscience. Meanwhile, the parade of BAF takes the theme Bhuana Kerthi: Sanctification of Universe, theme of performance—Stuti Mana Wibawa: Sincere Presentation, theme of competition—Paras Paros Upasraya: Vying for togetherness, theme of seminar— Dharmatula Subhaprawerti: Considering a wise measure, and theme of exhibition—Silvahita Karana: Skills as source of blessing. “The theme of BAF’s parade namely universe purification is very closely associated with the program of provincial government known as Bali clean and green,” he said.
The image of BAF as a trade fair will be minimized by disciplining the hawkers in the area of Art Center. If in the BAF of previous year hawkers were allowed to do selling in the area of Art Center, this year they will not be allowed again to earn a livelihood there. Meanwhile, the budget allocated for this BAF reaches about IDR 5 billion, an increase from the previous year amounting to IDR 4.5 billion.
