Official launch of PolyU Chinese Culture Festival, showcasing beauty and charm of Chinese culture

The University has organised the PolyU Chinese Culture Festival to showcase the beauty and significance of various aspects of Chinese culture, cultivate a deeper appreciation of Chinese heritage, strengthen a sense of pride and belonging to the Nation among the younger generation, and contribute to the development of Hong Kong into an East-meets-West centre for international cultural exchange.


As part of the celebratory events that commemorate the 30th Anniversary of PolyU achieving university status, under the theme “Powering Innovation: 30 Years and Beyond”, the PolyU Chinese Culture Festival Opening Ceremony was hosted on 14 March to mark the launch of a series of activities featuring pottery, lacquerware, embroidery, Chinese music and Chinese classics recitation. Distinguished scholars, experts and artists will be invited on campus to exhibit the unique artistic charm of Chinese culture through exhibitions, lectures, workshops and musical performances.


In April, PolyU will collaborate with Zhejiang Industry & Trade Vocational College to organise exhibitions, forums, workshops, multimedia displays and guided tours featuring traditional Chinese embroidery crafts and Ou embroidery works from Wenzhou. Ou embroidery, listed as a national intangible cultural heritage, is highly cherished by the Nation and often given as an official gift to international friends.
