The Snowlion Club is hosting their inaugural art exhibition in Toronto’s “Little Tibet”

This youth-led art collective has a dream -  that the streetwear designed and adopted by young Tibetans living in Toronto will raise awareness and show solidarity for kids and families struggling inside Tibet today. 

The Snowlion Club engages peer Tibetan youth through art and design to share the historical art and culture of Tibet, and provides emerging artists multiple platforms to explore their own creative voices. Having built a solid presence online, The Snowlion Club is ready for their first art exhibition, “Thrive and Prosper”, featuring 9 emerging Tibetan creatives encouraged to express their exile experience. In this film, we Meet the core members of the art collective and some of the artists featured. This momentous event takes place in Parkdale’s “Little Tibet”, the Toronto neighbourhood home to the largest exile Tibetan community outside of Asia, since the 1959 hostile takeover and subsequent occupation of Tibet.
