We’re excited to announce that Drebu will be participating at the Road to Asia Festival 2009. On Saturday, Nov. 7, we will feature Tibetan dances and songs by Tibetan youth artists who will be playing dranyen and flute. On Sunday, we will be presenting a ritual by Tibetan monks using traditional monastic instruments.

We will also be coordinating Tibetan artists who will be engaging the public, especially children, to paint Tibetan motifs and designs throughout the festival weekend. The artists will also demonstrate Tibetan sculptural art with colorful clay.

JCCC is organizing  a painting contest for children up to 12 years old. Drebu is happy to coordinate the contest for Parkdale area and Tibetan community. Download the copy with instructions below: click on the link; you can print it and let your child colour it.

Please drop off the completed coloring sheet with your child’s name and your email address at Tibet Kitchen (attn: Drebu) by Thursday, Nov. 5th, 6 pm.
