China is the most populated country in the world with a current population of more than 1.4 billion people. China is one of the world’s most ancient civilizations with a culture focussed on philosophy, virtue, etiquette, and cherished traditions. Chinese traditions and festivals are also celebrated and practiced by people around the world. Chinese language, politics, philosophy, architecture, music, dance, literature, martial arts, cuisine, visual arts, ceramics, religion, business acumen and history now have a global influence.
On Saturday 5th March, CAIRDE Teo will host a performance event by The Confucius Institute in the beautiful surroundings of Cultúrlann Aonach Mhacha at The Shambles. Traditional Chinese music and tea-making will be accompanied by an educational programme of activities for all the family. Everyone from the local community is welcome to join in!
The Confucius Institute at the Ulster University (CIUU) was established in 2011 to develop academic, cultural, economic and social ties between the north of Ireland and China. Since then it has set up a network of Confucius Classrooms in schools across the north, teaching Mandarin Chinese and culture. The connection between Ulster and Chinese universities has deepened cooperation in the exchange of teachers and students, establishing research and development platforms, and sharing teaching ideas and other resources.
Such cooperation continues to promote innovation in talent, cultivation, scientific research, business connections and cultural heritage.
