China: Engaging Digital Tibet: Qinghai

The project will provide young Tibetan students with cameras, photography and web training where they will engage in their local culture by photographing Tibetan material heritage. The photos data will be written by the students and put on a public interactive database. The goal is to inspire Tibetans in China to document and share their rapidly disappearing material heritage with the rest of the world through online photos and articles.


  • I love this idea, Elizabeth. I love the Tibetan culture and curious how people can make effort to sustain it. Would it be possible to share the existing web platform? I would love to browse it. Thanks!

    Hi Elizabeth,
    It is very interesting idea for the well-being Tibetan. I am from Bangladesh and know the culture of people of Tibetan. It would be great if you could revive the dormant culture of the indigenous people and share the globe.
    I have been looking forward towards a success event of you.
    Thanks and regards

    Hey Elizabeth,
    This is indeed a wonderful proposal. My only question is if you have thought of how you will you convince the local Chinese officials. We all know that eventually they are the ones who decide everything related to Tibet and Tibetans. All the best for this project.
