One of the primary components of The Quiet in Land's work in Luang Prabang is education. The purpose of these activities is to share knowledge, encourage research, and stimulate creativity. Some of these activities include:
1. Presentations by the participating artists to community members. These presentations take place at the Project House, the Luang Prabang School of Fine Arts, and other locations; and they involve a variety of community members.
2. Study trips to Luang Prabang involving students and faculty from universities and schools in other countries. In April and May 2005, students and faculty from the Université de Vincennes, Paris 8—Saint Denis collaborated with students and faculty from the Luang Prabang School of Fine Arts. In January 2006, students and faculty from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will make a similar study trip. Students from Columbia University's School of the Arts will also make a study trip to Luang Prabang.
3. Collaborations with other educational projects, such as UNESCO's Cultural Survival and Revival in the Buddhist Sangha project.
4. The publication and distribution of educational materials. For example, in conjunction with the project developed by Hans Georg Berger, The Quiet in the Land helped publish the revised edition of a Lao-English Buddhist dictionary and will help produce other publications related to the renewal of the Vipassana meditation tradition.
5. The sponsorship of activities designed to stimulate creativity. For example, The Quiet in the Land is sponsoring a Contemporary Creative Lao Textile Competition in Luang Prabang.
6. The provision of resources to encourage education. For example, The Quiet in the Land has donated equipment for the Computer Study Room at the Luang Prabang School of Fine Arts.
7. Participation in international seminars.
