2017 Festival of Tibet

WED 26–SUN 30 APRIL, 2017

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Tenzin Choegyal

Brisbane’s ninth annual Festival of Tibet is 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.

For hundreds of years Tibet was an almost mythical land, a Shangri-la which for most existed only in the imagination. Invasion and ongoing occupation have brought Tibet into stark reality and revealed both its treasures and challenges for the world to see. The Festival of Tibet offers audiences the chance to experience the traditions and contemporary expressions of a culture determined to thrive despite the odds.

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.

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.
