Alternative Olympic Opening Night (Portland)

Thought I would send along an announcement about an event Aug. 8th – the opening night of the Olympics – to celebrate Tibetan culture.

Please join The Crag Law Center and The Tara Cafe Project on August 8 as we celebrate Tibetan culture with the Portland premiere of /The Unwinking Gaze/. The 2008 documentary by Joshua Dugdale provides behind the scenes insight to the Dalai Lama’s struggle to lead his people to a peaceful resolution with China. Following the film, The Tara Cafe Project will give an inspiring performance of traditional Tibetan music. The Tara Cafe Project works to preserve traditional Tibetan culture and promote cultural continuity of Tibetan music.

  • Date: Friday, August 8.
  • Location: Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton Street in Portland.
  • Tickets: $20. Space is limited and advance purchase is recommended. Call 503-525-2724 or e-mail megan@crag.org <mailto:megan@crag.org> for more information.
  • Time: Doors at 6:00, Film at 7:00.

Proceeds benefit The Tara Cafe Project (visit www.taracafeproject.ca<http://www.taracafeproject.ca/> for more information) and The Crag Law Center (Crag provides legal services to local communities working to protect alpine ecosystems, including Mt. Hood. Visit www.crag.org <http://www.crag.org/> for more information).
