Chinese Culture Day Debut in Denmark

The Chinese community in Denmark celebrated its cultural roots at the first ever Chinese Culture Day on 2 August with artistic performances by 100 children from across China.

The young performers showcased their skills in traditional Chinese calligraphy, kite making, dances and songs, among others, at the event which attracted over 500 visitors and was held at Frederiksberg Town Hall in western Copenhagen.

Organized by the Beijing Huaming Weiye International Cultural Exchange Center (BHWICEC) in collaboration with the Chinese Association in Denmark (CAD), the event was supported by the Chinese Embassy in Denmark.

CAD Chairman Lin Yanbiao said that inviting the 100 children, who are from different provinces in China with different cultural traditions, to Denmark, definitely helps promote cultural exchange as they have shown their cultures to ethnic Danish children as well as to Danes with Chinese background.

It was the first visit to Denmark and the Nordic region for most of the performers who were on a quest of discovery.
