What Matters in Bhutan: Siok Sian Pek-Dorji at TEDxThimphu

Siok Sian Pek-Dorji is a firm believer that Bhutan must continue to tell its own stories to hold and preserve its rich culture and identity through its stories.

She has been telling those stories through her documentaries and articles in her career as a journalist. She has also written on Bhutan’s vision of Gross National Happiness and media.

One of her recent documentary productions, “Born Again Buddhists”, won the award for best cinematography and best direction in the Asian TV awards.

She is founder and director of the Bhutan Centre for Media and Democracy, a civil society organization dedicated to creating a culture for democracy in Bhutan. One of the Centre’s activities is to give voice to youth and citizens to enable them to tell stories about the changes taking place in the small landlocked kingdom of Bhutan, which is also the world’s youngest democracy.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
