Tangled Threads: Photos and Stories from Kyrgyzstan

  • Embassy of Kyrgyzstan 2360 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

Human identity consists of millions of tangled threads that connect past, present, and future generations. These threads stem from all aspects of our lives and blend with our individual experiences to shape how we see the world. In Kyrgyzstan, these threads are rooted in history, religion, culture, and where these elements intersect. 

Photographer and journalist Toby Cox traveled throughout Kyrgyzstan talking with people about their experiences and how these experiences shaped how they came to view themselves religiously and spiritually.

Join her for an evening of photos and stories about religious identity, living in Kyrgyzstan as a Peace Corps Volunteer, and her most recent project as a Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellow. 

Light refreshments will be provided; admission is free. Hope to see you there!
