Art & Craft
Components related to the field of arts & crafts have come together to celebrate the ethnic diversity of Nepal at UCV. It is a one-stop destination for those seeking a cultural experience and an opportunity to engage with artisans and a place to be inspired, create and soak in the multi-faceted diversity. UCV intends to replicate a similar facility and art space in all seven provinces of the country as a future program.
“The Tharus”, are the indigenous tribes living in inner Terai valleys and the Terai plains of Nepal. They have been living in villages near jungles and the foothills of Chure Hills, which are isolated and undistributed for centuries allowing them to practice a distinctive culture and religion. The Nawalpur valley is part of the greater Chitwan Valley in inner terai where most of the populations are Tharus, along with Magar, Brahmin, and Thakuri. UCV serves as an experience of Tharu culture that binds the aesthetic concept of natural habitat and traditions.
