Social Practice

In 2019 I was selected for a residency with the American Arts Incubator Exchange, and the country who chose me was Nepal. This residency is a cultural exchange, whose mode of exchange is a series of workshops developed around a specific theme. For Nepal the theme was women’s empowerment.

I had more than 6 months to prepare for this program, and so I had a lot of time to think about and research the topic of women’s empowerment. I spent a lot of time in the Green Library on Stanford campus, reading about Nepal. I also began, for the first time, to study the history of women’s empowerment in my own community, culture, and country.
