Dubai, UAE, 26 October 2021: The Emirates Literature Foundation today announced the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2022 will take place 3 - 12 February in a new canal side location at the Habtoor City hotels, with special events and activations at Expo 2020. Infused with optimism and positivity, and symbolic of our transition from the dark into the light, much of the programme connects to the theme for the 2022 Festival, Here Comes the Sun.
The move to a new location marks an exciting new era for the Festival, says Ahlam Bolooki, Festival Director. “Our continued success as a Festival is in part down to how we keep evolving, bringing in new elements, special events and features that resonate with our community.
“Our theme for the coming Festival, Here Comes the Sun, is perfect for our post pandemic world. This is the dawn of a new, forward-looking era. The 2022 Festival will bring optimism, renewal and it will shed light on issues that are usually obscured by the dark, including some of the most important topics of our time.”
The author line-up for the coming Festival will be revealed 17 November.
