“Tocar y Luchar” (To Play and To Fight)
Suggested Donation: $20 / $10
What fantastic conditions we have for practice, a beautiful warm, dry, well-lit Centre and friends to practice with. Other Sanghas are not so fortunate, the Merida Buddhist Centre in Venezuela for example. Is there something we can do to support our Dharma brothers and sisters?
This evening we’ll be showing a movie and sharing some Venezuelan snacks in our lovely Centre as a fundraiser for the Merida Sangha. You, your family and friends are all welcome.
“To Play and To Fight” (“Tocar y Luchar”) presents the captivating story of the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra System (El Sistema) – an incredible network of hundreds of orchestras formed within most of Venezuela’s towns and villages. Once a modest programme designed to expose rural children to the wonders of music, the system has become one of the most important and beautiful social phenomena in modern history.
“To Play and To Fight” is an inspirational story of courage, determination, ambition, and love showing us that…. only those who dream can achieve the impossible.
