2014 Confucius Institute Day

2014 Confucius Institute Day

Calligraphy, acrobats, singing, lion dance - this Confucius Institute Day had it all! In 2014 we joined with our partners at the Los Angeles Chinatown and Hanban to put on a celebration of the first annual Confucius Institute Day. Families, students, and passers-by all got into the festive spirit, and to our surprise even the police officer on duty spoke Chinese and was a fan of Confucius! Enjoy some highlights from this celebration of Chinese culture and cross-cultural collaboration. Many thanks to Oliver Chien for shooting and editing this video.
