Founded in 2022 , the Kuala Lumpur Youth Literary Arts Festival ( KLYLAF ) is a literary and performing arts festival especially for young and emerging writers , arts educator s and performers . The Festival is a platform for young people to inspire young people , while creating opportunities and exchanges for youths who are passionate about plays , drama , spoken word and storytelling .
The festival aims to support the development of young writers and performers while platforming emerging talents and creating opportunities for collaboration , performance and building a sense of community , especially for those who have no or little access to the mainstream scene . Through engaging , educational and interactive activities , the festival also hopes to promote literary and performing arts education to the Malaysian youth .
The festival ' s mission is anchored on the values of literary arts education , promotion of young artists and community building .
The theme " No Invitation Necessary " represents the spirit of openness , diversity , inclusivity and community which we aim to embrace in every aspect of the Festival . So much of our society is based on elitism and exclusivity , where access and opportunities are given based on " cliques '' or who you know , or who your parents are , or how popular someone is on social media . We want to challenge these barriers , limitations and restrictions based on social status , age , gender , abilities , race , culture , religion and many others . We want to disrupt the status quo of closed doors , or doors with secret entrances and locations , priority - lists and private auditions . At KLYLAF , you don't need an invitation , and you do not need permission . If the sky is the limit , where would you go ? What would you do ? What would you talk about ? Who would you be ? We encourage you to put yourself out there , use your voice , explore your potential and make space for yourself . You are seen , you are heard , you are felt , and you are welcomed .
