An insight into Tibetan culture

Tribune News Service

Dharamsala, September 11

The Tibet Museum at McLeodganj hosted a gathering of representatives from museums and historic sites from seven countries of the region today. In the Asian Sites of Conscience Regional Meeting, teachings of the Dalai Lama that knowledge must be shared to grow in a world where there is empathy and care for one another, and museums are the medium, were discussed.

The spokesperson for the museum here said the meeting would create a space where participants could identify, share and exchange lessons and best practices in confronting a colonialist heritage and its contemporary forms.

The meeting will include capacity building workshops,working groups and plenary sessions structured to support the development of regional partnerships and the launching of “Our Shared Journeys,” a long-term regional collaborative project that aims to shift from large-scale societal narratives to bring forward local, site-specific memories.
