My life in Dolpo. Photo-Presentation by Semduk Lama (29/01/2018)

Friday, March 9, 2018, Songtsen House in Zürich, 7.30 p.m.

Semduk Lama, the current school manager of the Tapriza Schule in Dolpo, tells us in photographs about his youth in Dolpo, where he worked as a goatherd and yak caravan guide, later earned his livelihood as a trader and trekking guide until he achieved his current position as the head of the Tapriza School. He reports of the manifold challenges of a school manager, of the times with the Maoists, the wild gold rush mood in search of the caterpillar-mushroom Yartsa Gunbu und the consequences of the earthquake of 2015.

Marietta Kind, PhD in Cultural Anthropology and president of the Tapriza NGO that supports the school will translate and moderate the conversation.
