About Us

AWWA Lit Fest

ABHIVYAKTI – the literary festival, is an initiative by Army Wives Welfare Association to give a platform for army wives to showcase their literary talent to the world. Season 1 of ABHIVYAKTI was held in Delhi in 2021 and was a huge success. The festival was a star-studded event with the likes of Smt Smriti Zubin Irani, Minister of Women and Child Development of India attending and addressing the same. The festival provided a launch pad to many budding authors in the army wives fraternity. To take forward the immense success and celebration of ABHIVYAKTI, the glorious responsibility of organizing Season 2 of the same has been conferred upon AWWA South Western Command. ABHIVYAKTI Season 2 is being organized in Jaipur at Jawahar Kala Kendra from 12 – 14 Nov 2022. The festival will offer interactions with writers, storytellers, poets, journalists, bloggers, and AWWA entrepreneurs, opportunities to attend educational workshops, witness eminent artists perform live, and much more.

"Army Wives Welfare Association has been committed to the cause of empowerment of women since its inception. Abhivyakti Season 2 provides a befitting platform to our Army wives to showcase their talent to the entire nation. Simply said, Abhivyakti Season 2 is true expression of talent".
