Voluntary Artists’ Studio, Thimphu, popularly known as “VAST,” was set up in 1998 by a group of professional artists as a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization. This informal organization was established with the sole aim of providing an opportunity for the Bhutanese youth to participate and develop their potential talents, as well as to share social responsibilities through artistic explorations and other socially useful and productive work. Its primary objective is to provide vocational skills and alternative, positive use of free time, and to facilitate artists’ participation in the national and international art realm.
