Queer Stories From Tibet in Exile has been cancelled to meet the Federal Government’s directive on limiting non-essential mass gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Ticket buyers will be provided with a full refund.

  • If you purchased your tickets online, the card holder will receive an automatic refund within the next 15-20 working days.
  • If you purchased your tickets over the phone or counter at Brisbane Powerhouse, our friendly team will be in touch with you soon to organise a refund.

If you have any questions about your refund, please contact our Box Office on [email protected]

As a performing arts venue, we rely heavily on income from ticket sales, venue hire bookings and overall visitation to the precinct. The prospect of cancelling multiple shows will have a significant impact on the organisation. If you can support us by donating even a small amount to the Brisbane Powerhouse Foundation, your generosity will be greatly appreciated at this time.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during this unprecedented situation.

For the most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 and how it affects Brisbane Powerhouse please see our advice page here.

In an Australian exclusive, hear from renowned queer Tibetan film maker Tenzin Tseten Chokley, as he shines a light on the ongoing situation in his homeland and the experiences of LGBTIQ+ Tibetans in Tibetan exiled communities.

Best known for his ground-breaking documentary film Bringing Tibet Home, New York based Tseten will also discuss his latest film project.

While attention is frequently paid to social inequalities and injustices, there is very little visibility and awareness for LGBTIQ+ Tibetans and their identities often get forgotten in the dialogue.

Hosted by community arts leader Lenine Bourke, this event will also feature an opening performance by Festival of Tibet director Tenzin Choegyal, accompanied by cellist Katherine Philp.
