A Museum of world renown, providing the highest quality events in rapport with Indonesian and Balinese arts and culture, with highly trained staff who work together to reach the organisation's goals while providing excellent service to people from all cultures.

Agung Rai's vision is daring, inspiring, visionary, challenging and broad. At the same time it is also meaningful, realistic, acknowledges and builds on the past, and focusses on the future.<

The philosophy of ARMA is a strong reflection of its creator. Agung Rai lives his life as a creative adventure full of exciting possibilities. He is keenly perceptive of people and the world around him and insightful about the present and the future. He is curious and imaginative; energetic, enthusiastic and spontaneous. He values co-operative efforts and good will. ARMA exists as a direct result of Agung Rai's love of the arts, as well as his culture and people.

Agung Rai's philosophy doesn't only impact on the outside world. This philosophy is well integrated into the whole organisation, and forms the fundamental ideas around which ARMA is built.

Agung Rai's leadership is characterised by his concern not only for the arts, but also for humanity. He is adaptable, seeks harmony and affiliation and leads by encouragement.

The ARMA Philosophy is one of

quality, and
the valuing of difference

This philosophy is integral to Agung Rai's vision and has produced not only beautiful buildings, but incredible opportunities for artists, Balinese people of all ages, and people from an all encompassing diversity of cultures.

Of course, no-one is alone with their dream. Agung Rai's wife, Agung Rai Suartini, has supported her husband's vision with her own strong characteristics. She is an excellent administrator who is objective, decisive and systematic. She values competence, efficiency and results. Together they model the potential of incorporating and valuing diverse talents, and the synergy of the outcome.

The task of designing a structure for this organisation was carried out by a diverse team of people, led by Agung Rai and Agung Rai Suartini, over a period of 6 months. The process used was as important as the final outcome. Agung Rai insists on consultation, teamwork and quality; Agung Rai Suartini focuses on professionalism, out-puts and quality. This valuing of difference, along with a strong emphasis on how the organisation functions, as well as what the outcomes are, resulted in a process of designing the organisation that was a blueprint for the structure, and reflects the values of the ARMA philosophy.

This philosophy is the guiding light by which the staff members carry out their work, and through which the organisation expresses itself.
