Viewing Dalai Lama

Tune into CIRCA at 20.23 local time until 31 January to see a new three-minute animation, The Art of Hope, created by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in collaboration with The Cultural Institute of Radical Contemporary Arts (CIRCA) in London. The message of hope will also be broadcast across a global network of screens in London, Los Angeles, Berlin and Melbourne.

In this commission — a response to CIRCA’s 2023 manifesto Hope: The Art of Reading What is Not Yet Written — the 87-year-old spiritual leader calls on the world to consider hope and the oneness of humanity:

‘We must continually consider the oneness of humanity, remembering that we all want to be happy. Along the way we may be faced with problems, but we must not lose hope. We must keep up our determination without being impatient to achieve quick results.’

A limited-edition screen print, The Art of Hope, by His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be available to purchase on the CIRCA website for £150 until 31 December 2023. Proceeds will go towards the Tibet Hope Centre and #CIRCAECONOMY, a circular model that supports the CIRCA free public art programme and creates life-changing opportunities for the wider creative community.
