The Conservancy for Tibetan Art and Culture is dedicated to the preservation of Tibet’s living cultural heritage in Tibetan cultural areas and communities around the world. CTAC works with leading institutions, scholars and others in support of their efforts to preserve Tibetan culture.
The Conservancy for Tibetan Art & Culture is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1997 under the patronage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. CTAC supports activities dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Tibetan culture through teachings, exhibitions, symposia, and cultural research. Collaborating with Tibet Fund, Tibet House, and other experts and scholars, CTAC aims to increase awareness of Tibet’s living cultural heritage among the Tibetan communities and the general public.
To preserve a millennium of cultural heritage the Conservancy works in remote and sensitive areas on the Tibetan plateau to identify, document, and help protect historically and culturally significant pilgrimage sites, shrines, monasteries, nunneries, artwork and rare texts. Believing that preserving living culture is part of a broader holistic process encompassing both the economic and social needs of indigenous people, the Conservancy aims to provide culturally specific education and training programs for lay people and monastic communities in coordination with international and local development efforts.
