ART FOR TIBET is an annual charity auction that showcases work from a diverse international pool of established and emerging artists, including a growing number of outstanding contemporary Tibetan artists. For many Tibetan artists this show is a rare and vital opportunity to express their artistic voices and exhibit their work without risk of imprisonment.
Art plays a vital role in Tibetan culture, and has long been a profound tool for social and political change. In a more immediate sense, this auction raises critical funds for Students for a Free Tibet (SFT): a nonprofit global grassroots network that campaigns for Tibetans’ fundamental rights to freedom and human rights and trains young Tibetan and non-Tibetan youth worldwide in strategic nonviolent action.
