Durban international Book Fair
"UNlocked & Unleashed"

1 - 7 August 2022

Call for Participation... 
The Durban International Book Fair convenes in Africa's only UNESCO city of literature. "Unlocked & Unleashed" is a tribute to the storytellers keeping the word alive under the most testing conditions. #DIBF2022 is designed as a global marketplace for readers, creatives, authors, academicians, literacy NGOs, language promoters, publishers and dealmakers.  The fair is also a unique opportunity on the vibrant African continent for those involved in rights negotiation for TV, film, audio, print and digital channels. The setting is the spectacular Sibaya Sun hilltop complex surrounded by rolling green hills and flanked by the majestic Indian Ocean.

A week long extravaganza, between 1-5 August 2022 at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom and 6-7 August 2022 at Pick n Pay Durban North, with a stellar line-up of writers, musicians and artists.
