BALI DYNASTY RESORT'S SUPPORTS AN ASPIRING ARTIST
The Bali Dynasty Resort has recently committed to supporting a young aspiring artist from a small remote hamlet in North Eastern Bali which the resort previously sponsored his the school back in 2000. I Wayan Lias is a young and very talented artist from Cegi and wanted to continue his education at the Fine Art Faculty at the University UNDIKSHA in Singaraja, for a degree in Fine Arts.
Lias is one of the students who stands out amongst other young artists and is an excellent painter. At his home in Cegi he works in a little studio which he built himself and shares his experience and expertise with other villagers interested in Art.
A selection of Lias’ art will be displayed in the Resort as well as being posted on the hotels website. The paintings are for sale and 50% of the money raised will directly go to supporting his education. After his graduation he will go backto the village to teach the knowledge he gained during his study to the community for the betterment of his community, especially for the younger generation.
Lias was invited on his birthday to celebrate in Golden Lotus and share with the management team of the Bali Dynasty Resort and the East Bali Poverty Project his experience at University so far. "I can only hope to give back in the way that the Bali Dynasty Resort have done for me to the next young generation in my village and I will never forget the Bali Dynasty Resort graciousness," Lias said
The Bali Dynasty Charity Effort has been so successful due to the ongoing support of guests and business partners and suppliers in supporting various initiatives to raise funds for this good cause and enabling those less fortunate and who are not directly benefiting from tourism some hope for the future.
The Bali Dynasty Resort, through the Bali Dynasty Charity effort established in 2000 has supported the integrated education projects of the East Bali Poverty Project initially supporting Cegi and Pengalusan schools and now fully supporting just Pengalusan. The program concentrates on educating 60 or so children in the basics of reading and writing, mathematics, arts and crafts, health, hygiene and organic farming with the objective that they become self sufficient in the long term. Since 2000, the Dynasty has raised over 2 billion Rupiah in aid making the Bali Dynasty Resort one of the leading sponsors of the East Bali Poverty Project.
