Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2021
Official dates for the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2021, LitFest 2021, have been released by the organisers, The Emirates Literature Foundation.
The dates of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2021 will be between 4th February 2021 and 6th February 2021.
The event, for the first time, will take place in a blend of virtual and real world events in Dubai to reflect the challenges of the Covid 19 pandemic.
The event is being themed around “Change the Story” in a nod to the transformation of our world under Covid and the opportunities presented by the discovery of multiple vaccines.
Each Year the Festival attracts more than 7,500 people from 63 countries to its streaming and show events, with more than 75,000 people accessing the event throughout each year online.
Isobel Abulhoul, CEO and trustee of the Emirates Literature Foundation, told us:
“We have reshaped ourselves to provide the same inspirational experiences in these strange times and the team has adapted brilliantly to the new ways of working and unfamiliar technologies.
LitFest 2021 will capture an audience much more geographically diverse than we are used to, bringing our conversations and insights right into the heart of people’s homes.”
The new “blended” format of LitFest 2021 will see a mix of live outdoor events and online streaming of interviews, readings and presentations.
