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.
