In Honor and Remembrance…

Two funds have been set up to honor Galen and Barbara. The Rowell Fund for Tibet was established by the International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) to carry on Galen and Barbara Rowell’s legacy in the Tibetan community. The Rowell Legacy Fund was created in honor of the late Galen and Barbara Rowell to support the Rowell Award for the Art of Adventure.

Rowell Fund for Tibet

The International Campaign for Tibet’s (ICT) Board of Directors and close friends and family of the Rowells established a fund to carry on Galen and Barbara Rowell’s legacy in the Tibetan community. Galen Rowell was the Co-chair of ICT’s Board of Advisors and a longtime friend of Tibet. Together, Galen and Barbara produced the book My Tibet, with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and introduced Tibet to countless people around the world. Through photographs and writing they documented and brought attention to many threatened ecosystems and cultures.

The purpose of the Rowell Fund for Tibet is to encourage and support the work of Tibetans communicating issues of importance to their community to a broader Tibetan or international audiences. The fund will honor Galen and Barbara Rowell’s legacy for Tibetans by providing small grants to Tibetans in the language and visual arts who can make significant contributions to society. The Fund will support established or aspiring and talented Tibetans pursuing interests such as photography, film-making, writing, journalism, and projects that promote these skills within the Tibetan community.

Examples of projects include: photography, photo exhibitions, educational pamphlets, newsletters, book projects, translation projects, public speaking tours, video library, women’s issues and environmental awareness. Click here to see the press release announcing the awardees for 2003.
