Tatwa Timsina was recently in the United States and met with social artists in Chicago. Consultant, researcher, teacher, and Social Artistry facilitator, Tatwa Timsina is the executive director of the Institute of Cultural Affairs in Kathmandu, Nepal. In working with community development in Nepal, Tatwa guides Social Artistry leadership training, program design, project management and strategic planning. He brings volunteers, programs and financial support from international agencies together with community projects such micro-loans, sustainable agriculture, health awareness, gender issues, youth education and others.
Tatwa reported on the youth leadership training conducted in Nepal earlier this year and its success.
Institute of Cultural Affairs organized a day long introductory Training Program on Social Artistry Leadership. All together 24 Youths attended the program representing the different Rotaract Clubs from the zone 5 group of Nepal. All the participants were students from the different backgrounds of studies. Since all the participants were Rotaractors all of them have the deep interest of Social Work so that the title itself attracted them to participate in the training.
Mr. Amba Dutta Bhatta took the lead role of the training and Mr. Deepak Adhikari supported him as the co-facilitator.
2. Rational Objective of the Training:
To help our participants learn about the skills to indentify their hidden talents and acquire a new level of motivation through active imagination.
3. Experiential Objective of the Training:
Participants will get the opportunity to practice the tools, to activate their imagination capabilities through the exercises on Sensory physical, Psychological historical, Mythic Symbolic and Unitive integral levels. This will give the participants an initial experience of the basic Social Artistry approach.
Tatwa was the third social artist this year to visit the United States from Nepal. In February Anita Shrestra and Akim Shrestra participated in the Creative Community Building Conference and Social Artistry Trainer's Training held in Colqluitt, Georgia. All three are members of the Social Artistry Leadership Program team in Nepal.
