墨尔本大学孔子学院游学团得趣 Confucius Institute Art and Cultural Tour 30-12-2014
The Confucius Institute at the University of Melbourne recently hosted a successful art and cultural study tour to China. From the 22nd November to the 2nd December 2014, the group visited Shanghai, Suzhou and Beijing.
In Shanghai, the group visited the China Art Museum, Shanghai Chinese Painting Academy, Shanghai Theatre Academy, Shanghai Ballet School, Shanghai Oil Painting & Sculpture Institute and other cultural and artistic institutions. Participants were warmly welcomed by Directors of the organisations. They were also given a chance to communicate with local artists, listen to their presentations, to take photo with the dancers and to do art work together with Chinese calligraphers and painters. The art tour group also had a lot of fun visiting historical sites in Shanghai
Participants were able to appreciate the beauty and refinement of southern China’s scenery during their visit in the Suzhou Garden. They wandered in the garden, lingered on and had no thought of leaving. They also took many precious pictures in the fine drizzling rain.
Despite the cold winter wind, the tour group enjoyed their visit to Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and the China Art Museum in Beijing. Participants also had an unforgettable journey to the Ba Da Ling Great Wall in the bright winter sun.
The tour was well organised by the Confucius Institute, and laid the platform for further such cultural exchanges in the future.
