School Cultural Workshops

The Confucius Institute at UoM provides a variety of different cultural workshops to local healthcare centers, organisations, businesses, local libraries, schools, and regional communities. Workshops are designed to facilitate understanding of Chinese culture, while also being fun and interactive.

Upon request, CI staff deliver cultural and art workshops including:

  • Calligraphy
  • Traditional Brush Painting
  • Taichi
  • Chinese Paper-cutting
  • Chinese Knot-making
  • Chinese Lantern-making
  • Fan Colouring
  • Chinese Traditional Games

  • Traditional Chinese Costume Fitting

School inbound and outbound programs are both available.

For further information, please contact Ms Luna Tai at luna.tai@unimelb.edu.au or call 03 9035 8204.

Alongside traditional Chinese arts and crafts workshops, the Institute also offers cultural workshops on topics such as Chinese language (Beginner Mandarin Taster Class), the diversity of Chinese culture, geography, and Asian Migration and its impact on Australia. These workshops are designed to raise the awareness of Australia's cultural diversity, extend the knowledge of modern Australian history, and improve participants' intercultural understanding. They provide a valuable supplement to the Victorian school curriculum in the learning areas of Humanities and Languages, and Intercultural Capability. Workshop content can be tailored to meet requests.
