Adab Foundation is a non-profit registered society. It aims to bring Writers, Poets, Actors, Scriptwriters and Thespians together on a single platform to initiate a meaningful exchange of ideas.
Chandigarh Literature Festival was inaugurated in 2012 keeping in mind the objective of Adab Foundation. In the second edition of the festival, we adopted a new format, inviting some of India’s leading literary critics to nominate books and films. The nominated books were then discussed, debated, critiqued, read aloud, enacted and celebrated the way excellent books truly should. The festival is committed to celebrating books, music, art and films, with some of the nation’s finest creative minds in attendance.
To promote literature and a love for reading among Chandigarh’s children and youth, Adab Foundation organized the Children’s Chandigarh literature festival in the years 2014 and 2015.
Through its various initiatives, the Foundation aspires to unveil Chandigarh city’s vibrancy of thought and its engagement with the artistic and creative world at large.
