About ALF


The Alliance Literary Festival (ALF) is a celebration of great ideas from all areas of thought and experience.

As the first literary festival in the world conceived and hosted by a university, the ALF hopes to reimagine the university – as a place where the great problems of the day are pondered and solved – and literary festivals – as the forum for practical and engaged education in the 21st century – in one fell swoop. An initiative of the Alliance School of Liberal Arts, the ALF will aggressively be transdisciplinary in nature, bringing together in conversation leaders from various fields: government, literature, art, film, science and technology, civil society, and law: and we even extend the boundaries of knowledge to performance arts such as theatre, dance, music, and stand-up comedy. The ALF 2022 will be the first step in Alliance University’s journey to becoming the hub of art, culture, science and innovation in India.
