On an ordinary day in early 2018, our co-founders found themselves discussing a music project for Uyghurs – a potential way to spread awareness about our people. It was clear from the get-go that they shared an interest in developing an understanding of Uyghur culture and identity while helping Uyghur youth.
They also shared the experience of living away from their homeland – one in Great Britain, with a tiny Uyghur community, and the other in Australia, with one of the biggest populations of Uyghurs in the West.
After many conversations spanning days, nights and blurred time zones, a more ambitious task was set: a global Uyghur youth community that was rooted in cultural values yet incorporated the advances of modern society.
A platform that encouraged us to be better connected across geographies and promoted a deeper understanding of Uyghur language, religion, history and all the different components that define a culture.
With the recruitment of a team to help build it and with the advice, support and encouragement of friends and family, the Tarim Network became the implementation of that idea, and we believe everyone has a place and a role within it.
We are a global youth network for Uyghurs, by Uyghurs.
We want to connect, inspire, and learn from each other.
Creating the community we want to see.
