Award winning artists Anne Riggs and Alex Pinder, authors of Bamboo, Banyan & Bodhi, will be returning to Nepal in December for two months and will have the opportunity to spend longer with the street children involved in their first project. Anne says 'It will be good to go back, to build on our first visit and delve deeper into its impact'.
We're looking forward to hearing how they get on.
Creativity is an inherent human trait, education a human right and play is one of the UN Conventions for the Rights of the Child. These are the cornerstones of our creative practice with marginalized communities. Each time we travel to Asia we spend some or most of our time running visual and performing arts projects – we find them an exhilarating way to enter the life of a community, as well as an opportunity to share our skills. Sometimes we are part of an NGO sponsored program, other times guests of a foundation or educational institution and sometimes we respond to impromptu invitations.
