What comes to mind when mentioning Chinese culture? Kung-fu, dragon dancing or maybe even Chinese food? These are some of the most well-known cultural elements to people in the West. However, the essence of traditional Chinese culture and arts is much richer and more profound. This workshop will give audience members an insightful perspective. Through photo slides and video, Dong Xiang will discuss: the essence of Chinese culture and its traditional values; how and why it was nearly lost; the unfolding of a renaissance of traditional Chinese culture and the driving force behind it.
