The CNY Celebrations at QUB falls on Mon 20/01/20, featuring a launch event, a Chinese Dragon Dance and interactive cultural displays.
About this event
The Launch Event is scheduled between 12:00 and 13:00 with refreshments at the end in the Auditorium, McClay Library, followed by a Chinese Dragon Dance and Procession beginning outside the Library, moving to the front of the Lanyon Building and finally the Main Site Tower where the interactive cultural displays and workshops, with music, will continue.
This event will also launch a series of presentations, providing opportunities to anyone that would like to gain insights into contemporary Chinese culture, as well as the experiences of Chinese people living and working in Belfast, through a series of interactive talks or panel discussions from a cohort of speakers, both academics and students, as part of the ‘Chinese Culture Forum 2020‘.
During this year’s celebrations, we will also be promoting a student-led Chinese Language Interest Group (Chinese-LIG), a learning community that aims to enhance a better understanding of Chinese culture through learning its language, with activities taking place throughout the academic year.
