Photo is of small gathering prior to my talk today (Sunday) at NexUs Culture Nepal, one of Nepal’s premier arts organization, in Kathmandu (Feb 17). Woman holding the book is Ashmina Ranjit, Director of the center and the country’s top performing artist/activist. Man to my left is K. Chitrakar, one of Nepal’s finest artist/painters (in the Newar tradition). Woman on end at left of photo is Lorraine Bertier, Paris-based Manager of the Shekhawati Project and a heritage restoration specialist also working in post-earthquake Nepal on architectural restorations.
