Presenting our young students in China
The visit from the Chinese delegation was aimed at expanding cultural exchange and enhancing the relations between the two countries.
During the visit, the participants discussed the artistic and academic mobility between FCA and China International Culture & Arts Company, whereby FCA professors and students would have the chance to present their work to Chinese audiences and welcome prominent Chinese artists in Belgrade.
During the discussion, professor Xiong Chengyu particularly highlighted the importance of considering new media and contemporary cultural forms, and linking art, science and technology. This has been recognized as the academic and research focus shared by FCA and Tsinghua University. The representatives of the Chinese delegation and FCA stressed the importance of strengthening future cooperation in terms of artistic mobility and developing cultural and research projects.
