The British Council Nepal is requesting a proposal for the development and delivery of a site-specific WOW Festival at Lumbini Park as the fifth iteration of the event in Nepal.  

 Women of the World Nepal 

 WOW — Women of the World — is a global movement that champions gender equality, celebrating the achievements of women and girls everywhere examining the obstacles that keep them from fulfilling their potential. Festivals take place year-round across the world and were first held in Kathmandu in 2017 at the Nepal Administrative Staff College, Lalitpur, and was convened by Jude Kelly, founder of WOW in partnership with the British Council. Since then WOW in Nepal has been organised in Kathmandu in 2018, in Janakpur in 2019 and virtual iterations have been organised in 2020 and 2021. This year, we are travelling to Lumbini province for the 5th edition of WOW which will see a one-day physical festival and a 10-day-long digital campaign starting from the International Women’s Day on 8 March.
