A group of MA students from the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies invite you to Step Into China and view an exhibition at the University of Leeds, in collaboration with the Business Confucius Institute.

This is the first ever exhibition to explore how the Business Confucius Institute in Leeds promotes the understanding of Chinese language and culture.

Traditional Chinese objects and modern business tools will be placed side-by-side in this exciting exhibition to showcase how the Institute works to benefit both Chinese and non-Chinese members of the Leeds community.

There will be a live tea ceremony, kites, lanterns and much more to help tell the story of the Business Confucius Institute in Leeds and its cross-cultural impact both on campus and further afield.

Visitors will also have the chance to have a go at writing simple Chinese characters with a traditional Chinese set.

We hope you join us and become a part of the cultural interaction!
