The conversation between our host, Dr Karma Phuntsho, the Founder and President of #LodenFoundation and our speaker, Siok Sian Pek-Dorji, the founder-director of the Bhutan Centre for Media and Democracy on 11th session of Bhutan Dialogue at UN House on 13 September 2018.

Siok Sian Pek-Dorji believes that as a small landlocked country in a global world, Bhutanโ€™s identity lies in its ability to share its own stories. She has been telling Bhutanโ€™s stories through news and magazine articles and documentaries in an effort to record the countryโ€™s rich culture, identity and its journey to modernity. Siok Sian is the founder-director of the Bhutan Centre for Media and Democracy, and supports training for creative non-fiction writing, micro documentaries and multimedia storytelling in Bhutan. She is a co-director of the Mountain Echoes literary festival. Siok Sian Pek-Dorji is also a firm believer in the inherent need of growing civil society for Bhutanโ€™s long-term sustainability and sovereignty.
