Why join the Association for the Radiation of Himalayan Cultures?

ARCH's primary mission is to defend and safeguard the intangible cultural heritage and its know-how related to traditional crafts in the Himalayan zone. To join the association is first to support its values, what it stands for and what it defends. Represented by eminent specialists of the region who form our honorary committee, ARCH regularly publishes Letters from the Roof of the World and organizes monthly meetings, making our structure a key player for those who feel concerned by these cultures.

As a member of the ARCH association:

• You get free paper publications of the Lettres du Toit du Monde throughout the year.

• You have priority for certain events within the framework of reservations.

• You will be able to submit your field research to our technical and artistic committee for publication in Lettres du Toit du Monde. All proposals for collaboration in the spirit of ARCH will be examined and, if approved, may lead to a publication in Lettres du Toit du Monde and a public evening.

Membership is valid for the current calendar year. New members' dues collected during the last quarter are valid for the following year.
