Chinese New year 2022

ActivitiesComments Off on Chinese New year 2022

On January 29 2022, the Belgium-China Association and the Confucius Institute in Brussels held the Year of the Tiger Spring Festival Gala. Nearly 100 Belgian and local Chinese people participated to experience the festive Chinese New Year and celebrate the Chinese New Year together.

When they walked through the school gate, they were in awe of  the Spring Festival Couplets, paper-cuts and red lanterns while traditional Chinese music was playing in the background.

There were many cultural activities with Chinese characteristics: Children paint Peking opera masks, and adults were learning how to play go. The calligraphy teacher held a demonstration on how to draw a tiger and the teacher from the Confucius Institute showed her ink blowing skills.

In one of the classrooms, guests can see 50 New Year pictures issued in China from 1959 to 1986. The New Year pictures evoke the memories of the Spring Festival for many overseas Chinese; in another corridor, there were 60 posters promoting the protection of cultural heritage, which were exquisitely produced. Many people stopped to take pictures.

The performers from the Belgian Chinese Dance group turned the classroom into a real stage and performed dances of Chinese ethnic minorities.

At the end of the event, everyone went outside to taste freshly cooked dumplings made by the director of the Confucius Institute. The “Dumpling Banquet” was a symbol of reunion where we exchanged New Year’s blessings.
