City Scripts 2017


Friday, March 10, 2017 to Sunday, March 12, 2017



City Scripts is the first festival focusing on urban writings. It brings together novelists, journalists, activists, thinkers, architects, planners, poets, bloggers and the lay community which lives in Indian cities, and engages with the experience of living in these cities by writing about it in different genres.

This year, the city comes alive in conversations about activism, music, food and culture. Slated from 10-12 March at the India International Centre (IIC) (Annexe) and Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan New Delhi, the festival brings together a power-packed line-up of writers, filmmakers, journalists, activists and poets who will engage with a range of themes, including masculinities, poetry, violence, cinema, reportage, and walking in the city.
