This year VAST winter camp was held in trashitangtse from 25th january to 2nd February.
This winter camp was an important step towards achieving VAST vision to establish a network troughout the country.
Starting this year “VAST Yangtse” was inguarated and will act as a center for art in Tashiyangtse. This would not have been possible without the interested and initiative of Sir Chojay and VAST member Sir Jigme Dorji who are currently school teachers and will be heading “VAST Yangtse” as an art center in Trashiyangtse.
The eight day winter camp was lead by Asha Kama and Rajesh Gurung two of the three founders of VAST Bhutan and five senior member and tutors from VAST.The camp was attended by 120 participants including school students, students and teachers from Zhorigchusum and VAST student members from thimphu.
This winter camp was organised to train and encourage the artist from trashiyangtse to guide and organise art programs and trainings for anyone who might be interested to pursue art.
With the establishment of “VAST YANGTSE” VAST Bhutan hopes that the people of trashiyangtse will benefit and get equal opportunity to learn and participate in all VAST programs.
