About Us

Odisha Art & Literature Festival is an endeavor to create a space for Odia writers, artistes, painters, musicologists, translators, lyricists, singers, playwrights, stage directors, cine artists for discussion, deliberations though panel discussions, interviews. It would invite writers and artistes from all genres from Odisha and outside Odisha and India to create a healthy atmosphere and cultural dissemination. We would consider it as serendipity for staying local and thinking global. We would harness the idea of believing in a world without borders -vasudhaiva kutumbakam. Our vision to take the Odia literature and culture to next higher level from its present position. It would shun any kind of compartmentalization of Odia art and literature and take all recourse to propagate the rich cultural heritage of the state. It would be held each year in Bhubaneswar, capital city of Odisha, a peace-loving and serene state situated in the east-coast of India.
