PRAYER FOR PEACE CONCERT: BRISBANE SINGS FOR TIBET
8.o0pm Saturday 18th April (Visy Theatre) 
 

Festival of Tibet highlight, Prayer For Peace Concert – Brisbane Sings for Tibet, brings together some of Brisbane’s finest vocalists and musicians for a must see-event. Featured artists include: Katie Noonan and Zac Hurran, Ben Ely, Annie and Michael Peterson, Leah Cotterell, Lucinda Shaw, and Karl S. Williams. Curated by Festival of Tibet Director Tenzin Choegyal, in collaboration with the performers, the concert will be themed around a poignant quote by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

When we see photographs of the earth from space, we see no boundaries between us, just this one blue planet, a natural world that supports us all. Therefore we have to see humanity as one family and the natural world as our home. It’s not necessarily somewhere sacred or holy, but simply where we live – so it’s in our interest to look after it.”

QUEER STORIES FROM TIBET IN EXILE

QUEER STORIES FROM TIBET IN EXILE

 

 

FRI 17 APR (Visy Theatre)
In an Australian exclusive, hear from renowned Tibetan filmmaker 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.
