TNUA’s International Exchange Center and foreign students club jointly arranged a cultural week running from December 4 to 8, offering lots of activities where visitors were given a better understanding of other countries’ foods, music, dance, arts and artifacts.

The cultural week was a showcase of the arts and cultures of the countries and areas where TNUA’s foreign students come from, including those from China. The opening activities featured a beiguan performance by a Malaysian graduate student from the Department of Music, and others from the same department. Xavier Breed from New Zealand – a graduate student of the Department of Dance – staged a performance combining traditional dances of Hawaii, Tokelau and Samoa.

There was also a bazaar selling foods, handicrafts and others. TNUA President Prof. Chen Kai-Huang, Vice President Prof. Chia-Yi Lee, Dean of Academic Affairs Prof. Hsu Ya-Hsiang, International Exchange Center Chief Director Prof. Lin Hong John, and Secretary General Pao-Hsuan Wang also attended the opening activities. Prof. Chen noted that such a cultural week was meant to let different cultures better understand each other, respect each other and get closer to each other.

Prof. Lin said the process of internationalization starts from the individuals, allowing interactions and exchanges to ripple out. Prof. Lin said the cultural week let all members of TNUA witness the cultural diversity on campus. During the week, there were five workshops conducted by students, teaching Portuguese Azulego painting, New Zealand traditional dance and street dance, and how to make Baba Nyonya cuisine Ondeh-ondeh.
