About JLF New York
The 15th edition of the iconic annual Jaipur Literature Festival was held at the Pink City of Jaipur, Rajasthan in March 2022. A splendid success, it was celebrated for the first time both online and offline, with an impressive line-up of speakers, and the inspiring aura of the Festival reached our listeners, present both digitally and on-ground.
The exhilarating energy of the Jaipur Festival will be returning to New York this year as JLF New York will be celebrated in a perfect blend of the physical & the virtual.
In the years 2020 and 2021, Teamwork Arts, the producer of the Jaipur Literature Festival, harnessed the power of the digital space and organized international editions of JLF online.These international editions fused the multilingual literary heritage of South Asia with the distinct flavor of the host regions. With the aim of celebrating dialogue and the free flow of ideas, the virtual avatar of JLF kept the creative spirit of conversations alive with a set of writers, thinkers, poets, artists, and filmmakers engaged in gripping discussions.
We saw that throughout the last two years, what remained vital were books, ideas, and discourse. In 2022, as we emerge stronger, ready to embrace change and get back to the powerful energy of being together physically while coming together virtually whenever we need to, we look towards our forthcoming hybrid edition of JLF New York, after the last two successful virtual editions held in association with the Consulate General of India, New York and Asia Society.
This year, we will celebrate the cosmopolitanism and energy of New York City -on-ground - along with the heady freedom of the virtual world - with our community of more than 22 million people across the world. We will be back with our signature camaraderie, our caravan of ideas, and the magical flow of conversations.
