Exhibition Map

We are organizing “Youngzoom on Garbage” an art Festival at the Clock Tower Square from 26 to 29 August 2010. The festival is the final stage, where all the efforts and results of our yearlong Art project on garbage will be shared. Many facts, visuals, information and findings will be displayed in world class standards through various medium of art. The festival will also show case collective efforts put in by various organizations and individuals. It is designed for maximum interaction with the general public and recognizes the ABC (Advocacy Behavioral change) approach to garbage problem.

VAST Bhutan wishes to invite all as a partner for the festival and show case your commitment and efforts made towards the garbage problem. Therefore the festival becomes a collective effort to fight this serious problem and together engage our young people to create a wider awareness, featuring creative, interactive and mass participation. The City Corporation will be providing the space for free during the festival. We are also hoping to generate more funds to take this festival to other urban areas in Bhutan.

We would be very grateful if you could attend the post production discussion on the 14 August 2010 at 2.30pm at VAST studio.
