Posted December 09, 2015Dear Bagmati River Arts Project Supporters!
The project is moving along nicely and we have our tickets to Kathmandu! We plan to be there from March 12-25.
Conditions in Kathmandu have stabilized from the earthquake and monsoons but there is quite a bit of political unrest due to a boycott placed on Nepal by India due to their new Constitution but we are moving ahead.
We have added a new member to our team and he is Jason Dilworth who is a colleague and an internationally known graphic designer whose work deals with environmentalism and social change.
Here's a link to our updated and more specific plans for the project: http://albertorey.com/nepal-project/
Thank you again for your support!!
Let me if you have any questions.
Posted August 10, 2015Dear Friends and Supporters,
I hope you are all doing well.
I have been in regular contact with curator at the Kathmandu Contemporary Art Center and the exhibition venue where the project will be presented. It seems as though the ongoing monsoons have delayed the rebuilding process from the earthquake. When the monsoons end, the artist and community members will begin reconstructing their homes and taking care of resolving issues related to their family's basic needs. The city will also begin to address the dire repairs needed to their infrastructure.
Consequently, we have decided that it would be best to postpone the residency and beginning of the project until in March 2016 with an exhibition date in November 2016. If there is a silver lining to the temporary delay, it is that the additional time will provide more opportunities to secure additional funding and support for the project while allowing the artists more time to create artwork before my arrival. If you do know anyone who might be interested in this project, please send them to the following link:
Your donations to this project are secure and have not been used.
I continue to be indebted to you for your support and remain excited and even more driven to make this project something that can bring attention to the Nepalese struggle and bring some real positive change in their future.
