I had the opportunity to perform during a calligraphy exhibition with Oyunpurev Nyam-Ochir. It was organised by Bichig Soyol in the Art Center for Youth in Ulaanbaatar. The goal was to show a calligraphy performance to young generations.
The intention was to inspire young generations to get back into calligraphy and into the Mongolian traditional script by showing a LIVE performance by a Master of calligraphy and a foreigner.
This event was very well recieved and we had a lot of fun and laughs and after the performance we wrote a lot of children’s names as a present and a sign of gratitude for their presence and enthusiasm!

During the opening ceremony, I also performed a song on Morin Huur
to bring good fortune to the event
