Created a few months after the novelist passed away in 1998, the Alice Rivaz Association aims to promote the outreach of her work.
In 2020, the Association acquired all the rights to Alice Rivaz’ works. With around one hundred members to date, it organises events, readings, conferences, and exhibitions, all publicised on its website. To encourage research, as well as the organisation and creation of events, all the resources and documents at the Association’s disposal are made available to one and all. It promotes the novelist’s books on secondary curricula. The Association collaborates with the ‘Centre des littératures en Suisse romande’ at the University of Lausanne and with the ‘Collège pour adultes Alice-Rivaz’ (COPAD), named after the novelist when Ms Martine Brunschwig Graf presided over the Geneva cantonal government.
In 2015, the Association created the Prix Alice Rivaz triennial literary award.

Launching a prize is a way of paying tribute to the author, of keeping her memory and her work alive. It also promotes the creations of contemporary authors.
