KYRGYZSTAN – COME TO CULTURAL AFTERNOON
Update: As a preventive measure against COVID-19, TEH has decided to postpone the event to Saturday April 25. 2020, and move it to Culture House / Haraldssalen 3. floor: Vesterbro Library and Culture House , Lyrskovgade 4, 1758 Copenhagen V.
Saturday March 21. 2020 at 14-17 there is a unique opportunity to see and hear about Kyrgyzstan and Kyrgyz culture. Together with the Kyrgyz Diaspora in Denmark (people or population groups, who voluntarily or involuntarily live outside the country of origin) TEH organizes Kyrgyz cultural afternoon in Kulturhuset Indre By in Copenhagen.
As a presentation to the film Queen of the Mountains, a short introductory story about the Kyrgyz society today is done. The film tells about the Kyrgyz culture, and how a strong woman can get things to go up on a higher level: Queen of the Mountain. The movie is a historical epic from Kyrgyzstan, which was set in the 19th century, and which tells the true story about Kurmanjan Datka, a strong willed woman, who becomes ruler of her country and saves her country from total destruction.
After the film there is opportunity for a good talk about Kyrgyzstan, where through a dozen years TEH has worked with projects top create better opportunities for the most vulnerable groups. I.e. there will be opportunity to discuss a new initiative to create some good, sustainable sanitary conditions for a couple hundreds of children with disability in the village Shaidan.
There will be opportunity to buy coffee, tea and drinks (and sandwich) in the café. Additionally you can try some traditional cakes, fruits and water.
