Panorama International Literature Festival 2023
Bridging cultures, uniting nations
The fourth season of one of the major literature festivals in the world, the Panorama International Literature Festival having the participation of more than 76 countries across the world is going to be held in the month of January 2023. Hosted by Spain this year, the festival is a World Record-Winning programme for being the lengthiest literature festival dedicated to spreading humanitarian values and helping cultural exchange and being participated by renowned writers and academicians from across the world.
The signature programme of the Writers Capital Foundation which is dedicated to spreading the mighty values of humanity through the medium of literature, the Panorama International Literature Festival (PILF) is intended primarily to help cultural exchange and to enable writers to expand their horizons of understanding of the world. Unlike other literature festivals, PILF is envisioned as literary sanctuaries where the delegates have a unique opportunity to visit various locations in the area where the festival is being conducted and have an in-depth experience of the place and cultural vividness that we believe will help in moulding the future of a writer.
Theme of PILF 2023
PRANA: The Breath
The fourth Panorama International Literature Festival has its theme Prana: The Breath which focuses on the element of ‘air’ in philosophy.
Our planet exists because of the air that surrounds the earth and the very same is the life within all lives regardless of their forms. It is the basis of all movements on the earth – remember the clouds being carried away by the winds and drenching the sands as raindrops. Look at the way rivers are being carried away to the distant and fetching water for those myriad kinds of lives on earth. Watch those thoughts within us being carried away by the subtle principle of air within the body and evoking emotions. Air is the very basis of the very existence of our lives and the planet.
Apart from reminding ourselves to breathe the beauty of life and exhale gratitude for the very life we are blessed with, the festival also aims at spreading awareness of air pollution, one of the key issues the human race is facing now. According to the World Health Organization, every year around 7 million premature deaths are attributed to air pollution—a staggering 800 people every hour or 13 every minute. Air pollution is responsible for more deaths than many other risk factors, including malnutrition, alcohol use and physical inactivity.
We hope that the festival will not only stimulate intellect for exploring deeper philosophical aspects of the element of air but also will spread a message across the world on the importance of keeping our environment clean and safe for even the generations to come.
With participation from over 78 countries, Panorama Festivals are being conducted with the support of a team of writers, artists and volunteers from across the world who are striving hard to translate the vision and mission of the foundation into reality.
