Global Social Artistry Training in Kathmandu


Jean Houston, the original developer of Social Artistry, will be one of the keynote speakers at the ICA International Human Development Conference in Kathmandu in October 2012.  There will be an opportunity during the conference to make alliances with the ICA directors from other countries to begin training the leaders in the Social Artistry approach to community development. 
Preceeding the ICA Conference will be a Social Artistry training in Kathmandu open to the public.  The training will be conducted by the Nepali Social Artistry trainers.   The Jean Houston Foundation's core trainer and international training coordinator Janet Sanders will be in Kathmandu during this time to support the Nepali trainers and to conduct an advanced trainer's training.  
Invitation to Come to Kathmandu, Nepal:

Join Jean Houston and Jan Sanders and experience the ancient culture and future-building society of Nepal next October. The Institute of Cultural Affairs will hold its international human development conference Oct. 29-Nov. 2 in Kathmandu this fall.  Jean Houston will be the keynote speaker, and there will be a special Introduction to Social Artistry and Nepali Culture program immediately preceding the conference Oct. 27-28, with an earlier tour of Social Artistry projects and cultural heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley Oct. 25-26, and opportunities to tour other parts of Nepal following the ICA conference.  Stay tuned for more of the Social Artistry details, and check out the ICA conference website at
