ANNUAL TIBETAN CULTURAL FAIR

New venue: Notre Dame de la Salette Church

The Canada Tibet Committee invites you to Montreal’s 26th Annual Tibetan Cultural Fair and Bazaar. The event brings together Montreal’s Tibetan community and its friends interested in the Tibetan culture, religion, and human rights.
This year’s spokesperson is Hugo Latulippe - filmmaker, author and long time supporter of the Tibetan cause. His award winning documentary What remains of us is still a remarkable contribution that brings awareness to the Tibetan culture, in Québec and beyond. His activist art is echoed by the Cultural Fair participants: ‘once you bring objects into the world, through painting, sculpture, film, or anything else, you are an activist’, says Latulippe.
This year's Tibetan Cultural Fair will feature a handicrafts bazaar, live traditional music and dance performances, as well as Tibetan cuisine. We are pleased to announce a new event to take place throughout the Fair - the TalkTibet Speaker Series - which will feature book launches, film screenings and debates, with the participation of writers, researchers and activists.
The Tibetan Cultural Fair is a major fundraising activity for the Canada Tibet Committee, an independent non-governmental organization promoting human rights and freedom for the Tibetan people. The CTC is funded entirely by individual donations and special events such as this annual fair. The Tibetan Cultural Association of Québec preserves Tibetan cultural traditions, including performing arts, within the diaspora community in Québec.
Admission: $5; Seniors and students: $3; Under 12: free
