Since 2014, Teamwork Arts, has taken JLF to international venues with editions in London, Belfast, New York, Boulder, Houston, Adelaide, Toronto and now Doha, recreating the Jaipur Festival’s spirit and magic across the world.

The festival, in keeping with JLF’s international programming vision, will reinforce South Asia’s unique literary heritage, while being infused with flavors true to the proud literary legacy of Qatar.
