Policy in Nepal

2020-2022

MAP Nepal worked with child clubs, schools, art-based organisations, research and academic institutions, youth organisations and community groups.  

In the initial phase, child clubs conducted problem-identification workshops with their own members. They got the opportunity to participate in a number of arts and research workshops, exchanges and community dialogues. In addition, the child clubs also organised meetings with their parents, teachers and other local stakeholders to collect input. They used problem tree analysis to identify the causes and effects of the identified problems. They identified different art-based tools for presentation and dialogue. Art forms such as video, drama, painting, songs (folk songs: Lokgeet and Deuda) and other arts-based tools were used by child clubs to inform policymakers.

As a result of their constructive and meaningful participation, child clubs produced a number of arts-based and policy outputs. They developed and used creative and art-based materials to sensitize and inform policymakers on those identified problems. Child clubs came up with 7 such policy briefs under their own leadership through regular consultation and engagement with their members. Policy briefs were shared and submitted to respective policymakers, such as local governments, police offices, schools and others.

2023-2024

In 2023 MAP will be having a roundtable with UNESCO Nepal in September and is currently working towards producing a Policy (Art) Brief.
