2017 Program


The Festival’s five day program of events spans fiery conversations, intimate literary lunches, gripping live performances, hands-on workshops, art exhibits, workshops, markets and much more. A truly diverse melting pot of big ideas and extraordinary stories, the UWRF is a place to discover emerging talent and get up close and personal with some of the world’s leading voices.

“The festival – surely the best in the world – ensures that you’re never at a loss for intellectual nourishment”– Harper’s Bazaar.

The full 2018 program will be announced in August. In the meantime, you can view our 2017 Program Book.
