As part of the world’s largest free literary festival, which runs from January 21-25 at Diggi Palace, the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) continues its support of Jaipur Literature Festival in 2016. AKF features Nandana Dev Sen, Jerry Pinto, Paro Anand, in conversation with Nayanika Mahtani on Writing for Children, Writing as Children.
Several other partners are sponsoring the event including the Airtel, British Council, Coca Cola, Ford Foundation, Google, The Getty Foundation and State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur to name a few.
Setting the agenda for international dialogue, the programme for the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival 2016 will touch upon a multitude of ideas and themes including the age old, yet highly topical issue of Migration and Partition examining alienation and acceptance, across political, cultural and geographical landscapes.
Given the international demographic of both the Festival’s visitors and speakers, title sponsor ZEE Entertainment continues to support the festival, fitting well with their vision, ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (The World is My Family).
In 2015, the Aga Khan Foundation supported several sessions at the Jaipur Literature Festival including a musical performance on opening night by the Alim Qasimov Ensemble, presented in collaboration with the Aga Khan Music Initiative.
