When the earthquake struck Nepal, artist Gordon Davidson knew he had to do something. The artist has been involved in Nepal ever since his visit in 2010 to produce an exhibition for the Ambassador of Nepal ahead of the Nepal Tourism Year celebration. Since then, Gordon has been working with the Gurkhas on a sustainable art project called Kalaa Jyoti. The project has been working with Happy Children Home in Nepal. Whilst the children and carers at the project have survived the earthquake, not all friends had a lucky escape.
A music night was organised at the Arran Whisky Distillery featuring a host of talented musicians to support the children working closely with the project and Happy Children Home in Nepal. The event saw many individuals and businesses coming out to support and contributing through prizes and tents.
The Kalaa Jyoti art project takes art to orphans in Nepal to give them art skills which might give one or two of them the chance to earn a living with art in the future. For more about Gordon Davidson, you can visit his official site.
