Highlights this year include a series of special night openings to ignite the spirit of modernism and complement the new exhibition Modern times: the untold story of modernism in Australia.

Beside that, he also on duty to study the festival and meet some designers to participate in Bali Creative Power, an event organized by Bali Creative Community held in Bali November 2008.
