Turquoise Mountain Institute

We are a partner of Turquoise Mountain Institute of Afghan Arts and Architecture. Most recently our partnership has been helping to support the institute’s initiatives to develop enterprise, retailing and marketing skills amongst Turquoise Mountain’s Afghan artisans - specifically in the areas of jewellery, calligraphy and gemstones.

Over time, through the British Council’s support to Turquoise Mountain, there has been a marked, and highly visible, improvement in the skills of their students. Our support, besides providing professional development for their artisans, has opened up new international showcasing opportunities for the institute and Afghan artists.
