About Us

Odisha Art & Literature Festival (OALF) is an endeavor to create a space for Odia as well as Indian writers, artistes, painters, musicologists, translators, lyricists, singers, playwrights, stage directors, cine artists and social scientists 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 is to take the literature and culture to next higher level. It would shun any kind of compartmentalization of art and literature and take all recourse to propagate our rich cultural legacy. 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.
