HOPE SUSTAINED IN EXILE...
Now in San Francisco, a small group of master performers have joined together to form Chaksampa, offering this unique art to a world audience in hopes of keeping it alive for another generation.
Offering performances of Tibetan drama, music and dance, of the highest standard and the widest possible audience.
Fostering the appreciation of Tibetan culture and drawing attention to its threatened survival.
Continuing the traditions by providing material support, training, summer camps and encouragement to young Tibetans.
Recording and documenting performances in the Tibeatn refugee communites for preservation and study.
Initiating cultural exchange programs to explore the common language of performance with artists of other traditions.
Our plan is to establish a Tibetan Performing Arts and Cultural Center as a focus for our activities in San Francisco.
YOUR SUPPORT IS OUR SURVIVAL...
Chaksam-pa depends on generous donations of individuals, and on volunteers who share their time and expertise with us. If you would like to help, learn moe about our organization, please email us.
