About photo.jpg

BASAbali/BASAibu Wiki is a community-developed digital platform whose primary purpose is to provide a locally-developed, inviting space for the community to speak out about civic issues in a way that is meaningful to the community and a place for policymakers to listen, solicit and respond to those ideas. Please find out more about us at BASAbali.org. Contact us directly at Clara@BASAbali.org.

BASAbali Wiki started out as a community-developed multimedia dictionary based on the unpublished work of Fred Eiseman. When the community saw the power of the BASAbali dictionary wiki, they suggested that we morph the wiki into a platform where artists, especially those only known in their villages, could be promoted to the larger world. In response, we added a 'virtual library' section to the wiki which ultimately became 'Community Spaces', a place where millennials and others can speak out about civic issues -- in their own language, via videos, audio, poetry, prose, photos or other formats -- on a platform that the community itself is co-creating.

Any content cited from this wiki must acknowledge the authors (where authors are specified), BASAbali/BASAibu Wiki and also include a link to the article in which the content is found.

We thank you all of the users, sponsors and donors for your support. Without the thousands of people who have contributed to and continue to contribute to, edit, and use this wiki, it would not continue to be the useful resource it has evolved into. We'd especially like to thank Fondation Botnar for their multiyear support to deepen the Balinese cultural wiki in Bali and to replicate in Makassar, South Sulewesi as BASAsulsel Wiki under a larger BASAibu Wiki umbrella.

In addition to the special donors listed on particular shelves or entries in the wiki, we also would like to thank the following for wiki-wide assistance:
