2013

Multimedia Art Exhibition

Projects By Year:

In 2013, Australia was the second country in the world to host the Buddha’s Birthday Education Project – a multimedia art exhibition and range of educational activities celebrating the birth of the Buddha.
 
January 2013 represents a significant milestone in the Buddha's Birthday Education Project’s history. A team of Australian volunteers from the Sydney and Wollongong areas began the process of turning the Project into a local birthday party.
 
We are also delighted that so many local art talents have responded enthusiastically to this research and project, creating a diverse range of artworks that give this exhibition an Australian interpretation.
