Dedicated Tibetan Artists try to preserve the heritage of Tibet
As Tibetan culture slowly disappears from the Himalayas and the world, a group of dedicated Tibetans is working hard to ensure the survival and spread of different types of Tibetan cultural expressions such as language, art, music, philosophy. Lama Tashi Norbu is one of these Artists and combines traditional visual influences and contemporary style in his works.
This eventually led to the founding of Tibet House Holland in 2010, with the mission to create awareness of the Tibetan culture and identity. Later on, in 2017 Tashi Norbu fulfilled his life long dream and open the first Museum of Contemporary Tibetan Art, along with Leela Eleni Skitsa and his Team. The Museum now functions under the Tibet House Holland. On the 1st June same year, the Museum opened it doors to the public in the Rensepark Emmen at the spaces of the former zoo restaurant. The Municipality of the city of Emmen proved to be helpful in the opening of a new Museum, which fits in with the destination of the park, to attract cultural initiatives.
