We are thrilled to continue our relationship with The British Library by giving a £45,000 grant to go towards their Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF) London!
JLF London has been hosted at the British Library since 2017 and has a global reputation, being well-regarded for presenting major writers and speakers such as Bill Gates, Malala Yousafzai, and Salman Rushdie. The event currently attracts 1,000 in-person and up to 400,000 online attendees and this year The British Library want to extend the festivals’ reach to younger audiences, attract more first-time visitors and spotlight more British-Asian writers.
We hope that Jaipur Literature Festival London will continue to engage and educate its vast audience with our grant. Information about our previous grants to the British Library can be found here and here.
