Nepal Show 201828 May 2018 in Arts & Design by Manisha
StoryCycle, a non-profit organisation based in USA and Nepal is a storytelling platform that encourages people from grassroots to tell their stories and bring change in society. Recently we start organising a series of International events to promote Nepal and Nepali Product based stories.The exhibition supported the artist from Nepal who are affected by the earthquake of 2015.
We organised “Apa Sherpa and Stories from Everest” in California in February 2015 and “Stories from epicenter and beyond” in Washington DC in October 2015. Similarly in 2017, we organised a Show in USA ”Nepal Show 2017”; three-week exhibition of art, craft and multimedia at Fort Worth Community Arts Center, Gendy Street, Fort Worth, TX. This year we are very excited to organise Nepal Show 2018 where we promote Stories of Nepal through Art, Craft and Multimedia. Nepal Show 2018 will be showcased in different cities of the world.
Nepal is landlocked country surrounded by two giants India and China, We are vastly rich on geographical diversity and cultural aspects. Nepal is home to eight of the world's highest mountains including Mount Everest. In April 2015, a 7.8 Magnitude Earthquake killed thousands of people, flattened villages and reduced numerous heritage sites to ruin. At desperate times when our heritage is fallen, many artists rose up to revive what has been destroyed. They have risen again but they need to be pushed or rather pulled to the front. It is an opportunity for Nepali society to do well for themselves, while contributing to Nepal’s economy, its proud history, heritage and society.
Story Cycle will present the life and work of people through photographs, written documentation, video and physical objects in a presentation that will give a holistic view of Nepal.
Art : We have a collection of art items from our Everest Story Camp that was led by artist RK Thapa (http://storycycle.com/everest ). And Dumja Art Camp with young artists that we are showcasing at the show.
Craft : We have a collection of crafts with the theme ‘When Heritage falls Artists Rise’ from the team of Crafted in Kathmandu ( http://craftedinkathmandu.com.np ).
