The seventh annual Festival of Tibet will be a celebration of the resilience and optimism of a people and culture under threat. Founded on the principles of compassion and non-violence, this all-ages festival explores these universal themes through concerts, exhibitions, discussion and workshops.
Not only does the Festival offer audiences varied and engaging experiences through its mix of free and ticketed events, it raises much needed funds for the Tibetan refugee community with all proceeds going to the Tibetan Children’s Village schools in India.
Jetsun Pema, lovingly known as ‘Ama la” (Tibetan for Mother) and younger sister to His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama, will be making her much awaited return visit to the Festival of Tibet. UNESCO medal winner and first female Minister of the Tibetan Government in exile, Ama la will reflect on her experiences at a special forum and concert.
The opening concert will feature the popular and much loved international performers, Deva Premal and Miten. Deva and MIten will have just completed a 25 country world tour and are looking forward to presenting their evening of chanting ‘Prayers for Peace’ in support of the people of Tibet.
Witness the creation of a superb Sand Mandala from millions of grains of coloured sand, learn to cook Tibetan dumplings, paint, meditate, contemplate and be swept up in beautiful music – the Festival of Tibet offers something for everyone.
