Making the beauty, wisdom and philosophy of traditional Chinese culture available to everyone has always been our goal at Cultural Keys, and arguably nowhere is that more important than at embassies, where cultural exchanges are at the forefront of building good relationships between governments.
Read on to find out more about how CK helps embassies!
Why is Chinese culture important for embassies?
The world is at (and has been for some time now) a crossroads, or perhaps many crossroads. Which way we go next (as individuals, companies, socio-economic groups, nations and more), will be influenced by many factors, including economics, national borders, personal beliefs, political bias and more. At the centre of many of these intermingled and diverging paths is China, and which path is ultimately taken in many cases will be influenced by China, to a greater or lesser degree. So an understanding of China by people at all levels of society is crucial.
Individuals, be they business leaders, normal citizens or even tourists, can help promote an interest in and understanding of China through hands-on experiences, by sharing information through presentations and discussions, or simply by making cultural news and content about China more easily available. Knowing more about China, Chinese culture and everyday life here, will be of great benefit to the world (as our founder has mentioned before).
Embassies are immensely important in the field of cultural exchange and cross-culture performance, often serving as a hub for official visits and point of reference when leaders and politicans want to know what is happening ‘on the ground’ in countries of interest, like China. Cultural Keys feels that providing embassies with access to authentic, accessible and unique cultural programs is of vital importance!
