Our Tibet Story

Australia Tibet Council Panel

Presented by Tenzin Choegyal and Festival of Tibet in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

Our Tibet Story
11.30am – 1.00pm, Sat 29 Apr

To understand Tibet, people must hear directly from the Tibetans.

Australia has a small yet strong community of around 2,000 Tibetans. Many were born in Tibet and have experienced life under China’s occupation. Others were born to refugee parents who fled into exile in India. Through their personal stories, Our Tibet Story celebrates the human spirit of hope and courage.

Join a panel discussion with three young Tibetan activists and hear their Tibet stories.

Our Tibet Story is an initiative of Australia Tibet Council to enable Tibetans to tell the story of their struggle in their own words.
