Carry modern art of Nepal into the world!

I am Beata, brand-new group facilitator in Holland, and just finished my certification run. I of course came up with new dreams, especially because I kind of have a new life after a bout with (breast)cancer, but I also have an old dream from before the illness: to help struggling young artists of Nepal to become a little bit more known in the rest of the world. It's a project that's not quite as earth-shaking as Barbara's activities in Turkey, but just the increased attention outside of Nepal is so thankfully appreciated by the young artists of a poor country which has just come out of a civil war and is undergoing great political changes... anyone interested should just look at what great things they do, stuck there in the former Himalayan kingdom, not able to travel the world because their economy just doesn't allow it (http://www.chautara.nl/artists.html)

I am an artist living and working in Sweden, and I am interested in showcasing some Nepali artists at a show I am giving here in August (nothing so fancy, just at the local café...I live in a tiny town). ALSO...I would like to start a website similar to the one that you have for Nepali artists, but for some artists I know in Pakistan. Do you know how I should get started with that? You can email me at funnyvalentine1983@hotmail.com Thank you in advance!! -Jessica

This is a wonderful idea. I spent 2 months in Nepal a few years ago and fell in love. I also thought the street musicians in Kathmandu were amazing.
