We are excited to invite you to an evening of Nepalese immersion and celebration at The Hungry Buddha, Curtin, on Thursday 16 June from 6.30pm – 9.30pm! Please note this is a ticketed event.
The night is to raise money for the documentary Carrying Everest. We are a mixed Australian/Kulung film crew who will trek 200km on foot through the Solukhumbu region of Nepal during September/October. Our aim is to document the stories of the marginalised Kulung community through the documentary Carrying Everest, the very first of its kind. Few people have heard of the Kulung, yet they remain the backbone of the Everest tourism industry.
The night will include:
* A traditional Nepalese banquet dinner
* Guest speakers from the film crew
* Silent auction of Nepalese handicrafts
* Wine/spirits/beer available to purchase (no BYO, sorry!)
* Live entertainment
Tickets are $50 (plus Eventbrite’s fee). All money raised will be used in the Mahakulung region of Eastern Nepal (ie not on plane tickets, film equipment).
This is an opportunity to connect with the local community and help the Kulung people of Eastern Nepal.
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. All money raised on this evening will go straight into the pockets of the local communities we visit. 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.
