Thank you for hosting Khabda 5 in your local community!
The fifth & final Machik Khabda of 2019 was a special one. As suggested by a summer intern, we were excited to launch this unique rendition of Khabda where we took a step back in terms of curation and gave local communities a chance to redo a Khabda that has already taken place. Instead of a new feature, the 5th Khabda gatherings shone another spotlight on the previously discussed topics: Enticement, Pekar Retrospective, Valley of the Heroes, and Anu Ranglug.
This Khabda Redo was perfect for those who were new to the Khabda network - as well as to old hosts and communities who might have missed one of the previously featured topics. It was a time to catch up and join in on the conversation! Local hosts who had organized all previous Khabdas (our superhosts!!) received a special reading from Enticement as an additional bonus Khbada conversation topic. We hope that everyone enjoyed this Khabda Redo experience. For further inquiries on the program, feel free to reach us at email@example.com.
WHAT IS KHABDA?
Khabda in Tibetan means an informal chat or conversation. In the spirit of transgressing the boundaries between contemporary Tibet and the global context, Machik is launching Khabda as a platform for local communities world-wide to explore books, film, art, music and other Tibetan cultural forms emerging from inside Tibet today.
On a set day every second month, each Khabda will focus on a specific reading or viewing selection curated by the Machik team or a guest convener. Some sessions will spotlight a Tibetan storyteller or dynamic cultural producer, while others will feature a theme or topic that is trending in cultural conversations inside Tibet.
A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF CONVERSATION
Machik's Khabda is a global conversation. That means we'll be organizing Khabda gatherings in local communities world-wide. Venues will range from coffee shops and living rooms to campus dorms and restaurants. Some will be a group of friends gathering over afternoon tea, while others could be a potluck dinner or after-dinner drinks at a local watering-hole. Each local conversation will be unique, and we'll be looking forward to hearing about each one through the hashtag #machikkhabda on social media. See you there!
