Strategic Meeting of the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC) 2016 in Denpasar was enlivened with the international exhibition of paintings, photo and caricature. The event held on August 7-10 at the Inna Grand Bali Beach also featured Balinese classical dances that have been recognized by the UNESCO. “This exhibition features home and foreign artists to show off their skill of painting on canvas,” said the Head of the Denpasar Tourism Office, I Wayan Gunawan.

Gunawan said that in this OWHC meeting Denpasar serves as the host to represent Indonesia. The meeting followed by 41 mayors of the heritage city network throughout the Asia- Pacific region is very influential on the development of Culture and Tourism in Bali, especially Denpasar in the future. “This meeting serves as promotion of culture and tourism that can certainly mobilize all sectors of the economy in Denpasar. At the end, it will bring in prosperity to the community,” he said.

The OWHC meeting in Denpasar features three important agendas namely cultural event, strategic meeting and international exhibition of painting and photograph. It also discusses how to maintain cultural heritage, so that it can be useful to the welfare of society. The cultural heritage must be maintained so that it becomes a tourist attraction. “The results of these regional meetings will become an input and recommendation to be further discussed at the international level in relation to the preservation of cultural and historical values and so forth,” said Gunawan.
