The China-UK Year of Cultural Exchange

The China-UK Year of Cultural Exchange


The China-UK Year continues to be going on throughout 2015, during which the states have exchanged cultural seasons to showcase imagination and the diversity of each.

The British Cultural Season opened during the visit of the Duke of Cambridge to China. A final touch was added by the duke to a Shaun the Sheep sculpture in a conventional eye-dotting service. With more than 30 creative and cross-bound modern arts programs, the season gives rich and diversified experiences of contemporary cultural and creative development of the UK to the Chinese audience.

The Chinese Culture Season, themed Creative China, established in the UK in August, presenting Chinese culture and imagination to the British public. Great artists and art troupes visited the UK to participate in world-famous programs at Edinburgh International Festival Shakespeare’s Globe, and the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and more shows and actions will probably be rolled out until December.

In addition, direct dialogues and collaboration between Chinese and British cultural institutions, art societies and artists ensure and greatly foster the advancement of China-UK connections that are cultural.
