On Saturday May 28th, we invite family, friends and supporters from across the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle (and even further abroad!), to join us for an evening of Nepalese immersion and celebration at Like Minds at Avoca Beach, NSW.
The night will kick off at 6.30pm and include:
* A traditional Nepalese banquet for dinner
* Meditation and relaxation practice
* Live acoustic music
* Screening of the pitch film
* Guest speakers from the film crew
* BYO alcohol and drinks (herbal teas and water provided)
Tickets are $50.00 (plus Eventbrite’s fees) and can be purchased here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/carrying-everest-fundraiser-like-minds-avoca-beach-nsw-tickets-24900030662
Funds raised on the night will be used to directly support the Kulung people of Eastern Nepal; the stars of our upcoming film Carrying Everest.
During our climb, we will stay in local teahouses (guesthouses), hire local porters and guides at fair wages and purchase meals and supplies in local villages, which in turn, will provide an income and much-needed investment for these communities. Because the region does not sit along the main tourist trail, the benefits will be a real contribution to the lives of the Kulung people.
Despite being among the most marginalised people in the world, the Kulung are courageous, humble and incredibly gifted. Our film is an attempt to share the stories of the Kulung to the wider world – to provide an insight into their lives, their thoughts and dreams.
The owners of Like Minds have generously offered their space for this event because they believe in making the local community and the world a more connected and beautiful place, and support projects and initiatives that aim to do the same. A simple coffee shop with a mindful menu, community space and vegetable garden, Like Minds is located at Avoca Beach next to the lake on the Central Coast of NSW (about 1 hour and 20 minutes north of Sydney and 1 hour south of Newcastle).
Come join us for an evening of Nepalese immersion and celebration in the company of the local community and help us tell us tell the stories of the Kulung people of Eastern Nepal.
We would love to see you there!
