PEN World Voices
April 16 @ 7:00 pm - April 22 @ 8:30 pm WIB
PEN America stands at the intersection of literature and human rights to protect open expression in the United States and worldwide.
PEN World Voices is America’s premier international literary festival, attracting the best known writers from across the globe. Since their founding, we have presented more than 1,800 writers and artists from 118 countries speaking 56 languages in venues across New York City in a weeklong series of literary events with a human rights focus. The Festival was founded by Salman Rushdie, Esther Allen, and Michael Roberts in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, with the aim of broadening channels of dialogue between the United States and the world—a mission that, today, has never been more relevant.
Join more than 165 writers and artists, such as Mihaela Drăgan, Laurie Anderson, Aristide Tarnagda, and Sean Penn to name a few; representing over 50 nationalities as they gather in New York for the 2018 PEN World Voices Festival: Resist and Reimagine.
Ideas will spark your imagination and words will inspire you to act. At this moment of great division, come together for conversations, debates, readings and workshops to take a collective step toward a more just world.
