Issuing a press statement Sunday, the organization informed that speaking at the program, Adriane de Jager, the judge invited to appraise and evaluate the artistic skills of Bhutanese children, said that the arts of the children speak a lot. “They speak their lives,” Jager said, “If the arts are to reach writers on the refugee issues, they can write narrative books over the thoughts of the children.”

Taking about four hours, Bhutanese children living in different provinces of the Netherlands demonstrated their hidden talents.

The program was facilitated by Jigme Gurung, the youth co-coordinator of BCN.
