The Tibetan Children's Village.

Living in our peaceful Wellington community, it is easy to feel apathetic about the human rights abuses that many worldwide face on a daily basis. For nearly fifty years, the Tibetan government has operated in exile. The people remaining in their homeland face a constant struggle against religious and cultural oppression. The Tibetan Children's village has been established by the expanding exiled community in Dharamsala, India. It harbors an opportunity to keep Tibet's culture alive through their children. These children, many of whose parents have risked their lives smuggling them across the border, receive a traditional education not possible in occupied Tibet. Although supported by the Indian Government, the school relies almost entirely on international aid to operate. Basics such as warm clothing and school books are in desperate need. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the school for the specific needs of these children.

The concert has been organized by dedicated student groups. Among the bands are Lighthouse Music, a collaboration of experimental jazz students who will be drawing inspiration from projected images.

We would like this concert to empower our own community with the realization that we can create a difference for those in need who hold a presence in our minds and hearts but who are in fear of becoming forgotten.
