Bali Creative Community Mission & Goals
ABOUT THE BALI CREATIVE COMMUNITY
The fabric of Bali's creative economy will represent the inter-mingled structure, which is the uniqueness of its culture. This is constantly being enriched with the new colors of contemporary global living environment.
With tourism growing quickly, trade expanding, people moving, people staying - Bali has gradually become the center of global attention for many interests. The demand for an established infrastructure to accommodate all activities as a global village has escalated in recent years. The influences of the global interaction have exploded in the rapid growth of available goods & services in many forms.
The Bali Creative Community, spearheaded by BEDO (Bali Export Development Organization ) and Bali Now! was formed by people from different walks of lives, who are keen to participate in the island's drive toward independence from the sole economic powerhouse of tourism.
This community comprises individuals in Bali who are professionally involved in: Film - Music - Advertisement - Mobile Content - Literature - Museums/Galleries/Parks - Animation - Fashion - Product Design - Visual Art - Architecture - Publishing - Graphic Design - Culinary - Art , Dance & Music Performances - Interactive Games - Technotainment - Internet.
(BCC) Bali Creative Community) is proud to present the best of Bali's creative players in a combined effort to offer the world a variety of unique artists and individuals to enter the global market with quality products & services, while maintaining Bali's integrity with it's phenomenal cultural heritage and the priority of finding the sound solutions to preserve our planet.

MISSION: To develop, empower and sustain the role of creative industries as one of major contributors in Bali's economic growth and establish Bali as a showcase to the world for Indonesia's creative industry
VISION: to enhance awareness, application and the drive of creative industries in all strata of society, while maintaining the strength of cultural life in Bali, at the same time developing awareness of how the industry can use creativity towards solving the present environmental crisis to nurture and maintain a strong creative/design based society, by finding ways of sharing Bali?s rich heritage of traditional creativity
Creativity: Having the ability or power to create, characterized by originality and expressiveness.
Sustainability: Capable of being continued with positive long-term effect on the environment, and society.
The balance between these two concepts is what we strive for. To aim at fulfilling the need for products with high design value, while contributing to sustainability and delivering quality to customers.
Why are we talking about Creativity and Sustainability in one context?
We need to promote literacy of what sustainable development is and how it contributes to the improvement of life conditions for all.
Our VISION should be environmental, economic and social wellbeing of individuals, groups of citizens, societies and the world at large.
Our MISSION should be to stimulate new, innovative and more responsible ways of thinking, living and working.
Our ROLE should be to facilitate the sharing of such insight, knowledge and wisdom and the use of such tangible methods and tools, as are needed to foster responsible innovation and development.

Bali Creative Community Present “Evening With Designers”
Saturday 29 November 2008. 5.30 pm.
Sanur Paradise Plaza.
Featuring World’s Most Outstanding Graphic Designer Stefan Sagmeister. Now in Bali for 1 year self-project. Presenting his latest works on a book: “Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far”
Astonishingly, Stefan Sagmeister has only learned twenty or so things in his life so far. But he did manage to publish these personal maxims all over the world, in spaces normally occupied by advertisements and promotions: as billboards, projections, light-boxes, magazine spreads, annual report covers, fashion brochures, and, recently, as giant inflatable monkeys. In this presentation Sagmeister throws his diary, a lot of design, and a little art together with a pinch of psychology and a dash of happiness into a blender and pushes the button. It tastes surprisingly yummy.
To use a word like “legend” in connection with Stefan Sagmeister does not seem too far a stretch. Emily Heyward
