Exploring Chinese Culture: Our Collaboration for Friendship and Cultural Exchange

We believe in the power of cultural exchange to foster friendship and understanding between nations. In collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce Gmunden, the Confucius Institute of the University of Vienna and the Federal Music School Bad Goisern, we were excited to offer the China Culture Workshop titled "8 Steps to China." This initiative, spearheaded and organised by Romana Obermairs Association AME-Austrian Music Education, offered a unique opportunity to delve into the rich tapestry of Chinese culture.

Embracing Cultural Diversity

In a rapidly globalising world, it is essential to embrace openness to other cultures and appreciate their unique contributions. The China Culture Workshop aimed to cultivate openness and appreciation for the rich heritage of China. Participants had the privilege of engaging in eight practice-oriented workshops, each focusing on a specific aspect of Chinese culture. From calligraphy and traditional music to tea ceremonies and martial arts, every workshop provided an interactive platform for participants to immerse themselves in the essence of Chinese traditions. The event fostered an environment of cultural diversity and respect, encouraging participants to explore, learn, and build connections.
