Culture rests at the heart of human connection. It enables us to cross oceans, find common ground, and build empathy across borders. What role does culture play in building better understanding between China and Canada?

In an eclectic and dynamic evening, we invite you to connect with Canadian artists who are shaping, guiding, and framing Canada’s relationship with China. Through a series of short vignettes, we will explore the role that culture plays in advancing Canada’s global relationships. Through this evening, we will ask: is cultural diplomacy important? Is culture diplomacy?

Presenters include: comedian Mark Rowswell (Dashan/大山), curator Zheng Shengtian, artist Hank Bull, dancer Chan Hon Goh and the Goh Ballet, and dancer Wen Wei Wang. The evening will be moderated by China expert Jan Walls.
