Description

The Cultural Program of the Confucius Institute at UADY

Our Cultural Program (activities) Chinese Day This is CI-UADY major event organized twice a year at the University Headquarters on Sunday mornings or evenings; during the spring, we celebrate the Spring Festival and during the second semester, we celebrate Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. CI-UADY offers more than 12 cultural activities and exhibitions of martial arts, calligraphy, paper cutting, which gives people the opportunity to experience Chinese culture and have fun. Workshops During the regular semester of classes, CI-UADY organized three to four workshops for students to familiarize them with Chinese Festivals, Chinese Tea Ceremony, Paper Cutting, Calligraphy, Opera or Lion Dance performance. This helps CI-UADY teachers to prepare students with natural abilities to different arts and to students for knowing more about Chinese culture. Closing Ceremonies During closing ceremonies, organized twice a year, students have the opportunity to share with their families and friends, the knowledge they have learnt about Chinese language and culture. Students prepare, with teachers supervision, songs, plays, dances, poems, etc. and they present them to the public at the University’s theater.

Chinese Cooking Classes Every semester, all introduction courses have one Chinese cooking class where students learnt how to prepare “jiaozi” and “tang yuan”, the meaning of this dishes and when they are usually cooked in China. Local Chinese Camp at Hobonil During one weekend, generally in March, 25 to 35 students participate at the Local Chinese Camp at Hobonil, a University facility located two hours away from the capital city; an activity with the objective of having one whole weekend for practicing Chinese and learning about China. Some of the activities during the weekend are: Tell a Story in Chinese, Chinese Rally, Chinese twister tong competition, etc. students are divided into two or three groups for doing the activities and receiving points for it, at the end, one team is the champion of the camp.

Dragon Boat Festival Celebration On June, CI-UADY staff and students get together at a Chinese Restaurant for learning how to cook “zongzi” and enjoy its flavor at the end of the class. This activity is usually organized on Saturday afternoon so most students can go and share with Chinese people the celebration of this important festival. Conferences In order to bring the local community more opportunities for learning about Chinese contemporary arts, medicine, economics and politics; since 2011, CI-UADY started to organize visits from experts in China to offer different conferences at the CI-UADY and University Schools. Some topics have been: sustainable development, the silk route, traditional Chinese medicine, Asian Market, New Policies from New Chinese Government, Literature and Poetry in China.

Visit of Artistic Groups from Chinese Universities Since 2010, CI-UADY has received visits from different Universities Artistic Groups which offered two presentations at the city with an important public, up to 400 people each time. Local community has always been very excited about having the opportunity of enjoy a major show for free.
