Dear Friends of Tibet,

Over the last week, I have received quite a few calls and emails from people wondering whether the Festival of Tibet is still on. I would like to reassure everyone that despite the Brisbane Powerhouse experiencing some flooding, it has been cleaned up and the Festival of Tibet is definitely going ahead in high spirits from 3 – 5 February 2011. Please come and support.

Whist challenging, the difficulties we facing in the lead up to the Festival of Tibet are extremely minor compared to the devastation experienced by so many of my fellow Queenslanders. Much assistance is needed still, so please visit http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/ to see how you can help. Festival of Tibet is announcing that all the proceeds from TIBET: Awakened Heart concert will go towards the Flood Relief. So, please book your tickets to help our fellow Qlder’s.
