In May 2015, Bichig Soyol organised an exhibition about Mongol calligraphy. I was very lucky, and could actually participate in this exhibition! Many different ethnic groups were represented!
This event lasted for a week, and happened in two places:
First place was in Ulaanbaatar, where we could visit the government palace, get to know each other, and receive a few gifts! The exhibition held in the Union of Artist Art Gallery, in the city center!
Second place was in Hentii, in the land of the Bodg Khan, precisely in Chinggis Hot.
It was a wonderful time, and I could learn a lot about calligraphy and about Mongolia in general! I also had the occassion to exchange with calligraphers and tremendous artists about the art of writing or event sculpting Tamga (seals).
Find below some pictures of the events.

Little surprise at the closing ceremony of the exhibition where I was rewarded a “sign of respect” from the Province of Hentii for helping spread and preserve Mongol culture
