On Saturday, the photography exhibit “One Summer in Damak” opened at UNCG’s Center for New North Carolinians. As part of the festivities, a recent Bhutanese settler in North Carolina, Mr. Khem Khatiwada, spoke to an audience that included Bhutanese families who have settled in the Triangle and Triad areas of North Carolina. Many thanks go to Dr. Raleigh Bailey, Director of the Center for New North Carolinians at UNCG, for arranging the exhibit’s installation in Greensboro, as well as to Julie Knight for her photographer of the event.
The exhibit is comprised of student photographs taken during the summer of 2011 by KIE students undertaking research and community engagement in Bhutanese refugee camps in Nepal. Some of the photographs from the exhibit were also incorporated into a narrated video.
