A first exhibition was held in Nepal, absolutely envisioned in what could be a life-changing event for some, given the circumstances. A second exhibition followed up, open currently in Finland. Both showcase the same 22 curated photos. In Dhungentar, we printed in PVC; while in Finland, in fine arts paper. Visitor could appreciate both qualities since we have brought home 3 out of 22, showcased currently in Kalasataman Vapaakaupunki, second floor REDI shopping mall in Kalasatama metro stop in Helsinki.
The team for the Nepali Project 2019 has been working hard since the first 5 students had their first meeting in November 2018. After a while, these students from Aalto University, Finland received the news of 2 new members that will be complimenting the made in Finland team. By the end of January, the number increased to 12, with the new members from the Asian Institute of Technology and Management, Kathmandu. Today, there are only a few days left for getting together and working for specifics objectives and perhaps, building a common one for all of them, always focusing in the rural village of Dhungentar, Nepal.
There is room and potential to combine our scopes.
Both angles taken by the teams are valid and extremely complimentary. In one hand, the team from the AITM arises at first sight from economical sustainability; while the direction chosen by the team from Aalto University is mostly seeing on the social sustainability sphere.
