The Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute, Harvard University hosted a special talk as part of its Artist Talk: India Seminar Series. The talk titled “Trauma and Memory: Healing through Art” by Kabi Raj Lama – a Nepal based artist and Visiting Artist Fellow at Harvard University retraced the artist’s personal life story involving art, natural disasters and trauma.

The talk looked at the artist’s journey and experience with mental health after two direct encounters confronting traumatic natural disasters: the 2011 Tsunami in Japan and the 2015 Gorkha earthquake in Nepal. Lama talked about his experience and survival stories from the Tsunami and earthquake, and a following realisation that mental health is often ignored in the process of rebuilding after such disasters.
