Autumn in Kabul

I have been blessed with an extraordinary opportunity to spend two months this autumn at an inspiring organisation, Turquoise Mountain. This blog is my attempt to share my experiences of my residency at the Institute for Afghan Arts and Architecture in Kabul.

I also hope that it will be an insight into a vibrant community that amongst restoration and regeneration projects, education initiatives, cultural activities and related business development is through their Institute passing the skills of traditional Afghan Arts and Architecture to a new generation of artisans. It is this element that I am privileged to observe and to engage with.

Interested to find out more? Watch this space…

This residency is supported by The British Council in partnership with Turquoise Mountain. For further information on these two organisations:
