The Chinese Community

Date: Wednesday 16th June

Time: 12 noon – 1.00pm

The Culture Café events celebrate the diversity of multi-cultural Belfast.  The events focus on minority communities across the city and promote respect and understanding of these cultures.  Each Culture Café will focus on a different culture and their contribution to Belfast’s history.  We are delighted that our first three events will focus on the Indian, Polish, and Chinese communities.

The Chinese Welfare Association will present their community’s past, present and future links between Belfast and the People’s Republic of China.   

It will also be opportunity to see a showcase of talents from the Belfast Chinese community.  2021 is the Year of the Ox and we will watch a demonstration of zhezhi – the art of paper folding relating to the Year of the Ox. The traditional Chinese fan dance has been a part of China’s heritage for over two thousand years and we will be treated to a performance by local performer, Weihong Tu. Our finale will be a special appearance from a Chinese Lion.
