Art in Uncertainty: Peak Art Gallery and the Tibetan Artists of McLeod Ganj

Dharamshala: With the combined stresses of paying for materials, finding a workspace, and balancing one’s personal interests with audience appeal, being an artist is never a profession for the faint of heart.  But to survive as an artist, while simultaneously holding a status as a Tibetan refugee in India?  Doing so would surely be incredibly difficult, if not impossible.  Nevertheless, in McLeod Ganj of Upper Dharamshala, a small community of artists is doing just this, with the help of Tashi Gyatso’s Peak Art Gallery.

My Story: On What It Means to Own Land

Dharamshala: Like many I came to McLeod Ganj to help the Tibetan's-in-exile, I arrived expecting to work in the construction industry, as that is my occupation back home. Instead I was lucky enough to be asked to volunteer at The Tibet Post to write articles. I was also lucky, in that I formed a friendship with a young Tibetan man. I asked if I could write his story, but he has taken the initiative and has written it himself, and I much prefer it like this. It is real. It is titled "My Story".
