The Dialogue between Chinese and Indian Writers was organized by Hong Kong Poetry Festival Foundation and two prominent literary magazines—Today from China and Almost Island from India. The Dialogue was held in Hong Kong on 13-14 October 2018 at the University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong. Today and Almost Island have been convening contemporary Chinese and Indian writers, critics, musicians and artists for international cultural exchange since 2009. Their ongoing discussions covered a wide range of topics—literature, music and art, as well as culture, politics and history, in company with poetry recitals, fiction readings and music performances. After the events in Hong Kong, they furthered their conversations in Hangzhou, Mainland China.
