The Cultural and Sports Committee is once again kicking off CityU's annual cultural festival, the fifth this time. The two-month festival--this year called Hands Across the Water--will begin in February, and a "World City Cultural Night" extravaganza will mark the opening.Hands Across the Water was chosen as this year's theme to reflect the many international cultures that will be celebrated at the festival. There will be music, dance, poetry, and much, much more. For example, two new initiatives, Lunch Time Cultural Performance and Film Series, will continue from February through April.
CityU's cultural festival would not be complete without the Wellness March, a perennial favorite. In keeping with the multicultural spirit of Hands Across the Water, the Chinese Civilization Centre will host a three-day conference, Cultural Traditions and Globalization: East and West.
"I invite you to support whole-person development, and actively participate in Hands Across the Water"said Professor Y S Wong, Vice-President for Institutional Advancement and Chairman of the Cultural and Sports Committee. "I look forward to an enjoyable and rewarding cultural festival."
