Fuzz Factory’s Fuzzscape, a project that aims to connect Nepali youth with their musical heritage from Nepal has been selected as the grantee for Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage programme from Prince Claus in joint call with British Council.
The joint call welcomed project proposals that enable young people to engage with diverse heritage within their own context and/or across six countries of South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) through contemporary artistic and new media interventions.
Fuzz Factory Production, a media production company which offers various audio visual production services and local Nepali artists will collaborate on the Fuzzscape. This project will combine and translate the local music and stories into digital content. In addition to the documentary component, the project will also work with the local communities and organize workshops for youth where they will engage with the older musician and storytellers of the area. The project activities will not only document their musical heritage but will also help the communities reimagine the musical heritage and to pass down the musical heritage to the youth of the communities.
