Festival of Tibet 2012

The Brisbane Festival of Tibet offers five days of Tibetan culture where audiences can participate in Tibet’s unique culture, arts and way of life. The Festival celebrates Tibetan heritage, founded on the principles of compassion and non-violence, while addressing the issues which continue to threaten the future of Tibet.

Children and adults alike will engage with workshops and conversations, be inspired by contemporary Tibetan art and music, and discover the profound knowledge of Tibetan medicine. Appreciate the friendliness and spirit of Tibet while Tibetan monks share their wisdom through conversation, music and the creation of a sacred sand mandala. 

Tenzin Tsundue, who Elle magazine named among India's 50 most stylish people, is a passionate poet, an award winning writer and Tibetan activist. He will share the beauty of Tibetan culture and the tragedies faced by Tibet today.
