Creative Bhutan info & Links

Along with traditional arts and crafts, Bhutan is home to vibrant and unfolding contemporary creative endeavors sponsored and supported by Voluntary Artists’ Studio, Thimphu, popularly known as VAST. Set up in 1998 by a group of professional artists as a non profit and non governmental organization (NGO). This informal organization was set up with the sole aim of providing an opportunity for Bhutanese youth to participate and develop their talents as well as share social responsibilities through artistic explorations and other socially useful and productive work. Its primary objective is to provide vocational skills and alternative positive use of free time and facilitate participation in the national and international art realm.
