  • BEING TIBET

    by Gaynor O'Flynn

    [being tibet] It's simple : a global, multi media project for Tibet, with events held across the world, all in one day By uniting everyone in one 24 hour period we will send a massive message to the mainstream media of the level of overwhelming global support for the Dalai Lama & his policy of non violence. [being tibet] is working with The Music Managers Forum & Featured Artist Coalition. The world class line up will be announced during His Holiness The Dalai Lama's visit to London in June 2012 : a line up from music, art, film, theatre, literature, dance & fashion who are staging their own unique, small yet beautiful, sustainable events but ... This isn't just about the big names, we also need you! We want you to follow your passion, do what you love with as much intelligence & integrity as possible. Arrange your own gig, film, art exhibition, workshop, dance, sport, meditation, fashion show, reading or comedy event, it's totally up to you! [being tibet] is about working locally & sustainably to help ourselves & each other. Staging an event in your language, for your people, your culture, in line with your beliefs that promotes & showcases your uniqueness too. You can keep a % of what you raise either for yourself or your local community, or give all or a % to a Tibetan group of your choice, it's up to you! In this time of global economic meltdown the event also champions small scale, sustainable, ethical business. We need you to act as a global PR & media machine using you tube, vimeo, soundcloud, facebook, text, flickr, twitter & e mail to send creative content not only to each other but also to the mainstream media, radio, newspapers, magazines, blogs & TV. Making the media & governments aware of the scale of support for His Holiness & the Tibetan cause. Creating a global database of supporters for the Tibet.
