You never can go back home, once remarked a wise soul. For many people around the world, this isn't just a metaphorical insight, it's a painful truth. When Tibetans left their homeland to escape Chinese oppression, they took with them enough memories to last generations. As a community, they stick together to keep their traditions and spirit alive. And now they've banded with friends to remember and reclaim what they left behind.
Friends Of Tibet is a group of concerned citizens around the world who support the rights, political and social, of this oppressed people. On this occasion they are holding an exhibition of photography that captures images of places Tibetan people have called home. Images Of Home & Exile is, as they put it, both a portrayal of "the struggle of the Tibetan Community under the Chinese regime" as well as "a projection of the community's political and cultural identity in exile."
During the event there will also be a screening of a documentary film that has the same focus as the exhibition, and is titled 'Tibet: Cry Of The Snow Lion'.
