Chinese Dragon Boat Festival Arts and Crafts Exhibition at The Palm House
Date: 18th-21th June 2023
The Dragon Boat Festival is an important traditional Chinese festival held in remembrance of a famous patriotic poet, Qu Yuan. Chinese people place a strong emphasis on traditional values and cultural activities, especially the older generation who seek to preserve and uphold this popular celebratory event. Evergreen Club arts group was delighted to share traditional customs of the festival through an Arts Exhibition featuring wellbeing and cultural diversity and exchange. The exhibition was open to visitors from 18th – 21st June at Sefton Park Palm House. Members visited the exhibition and left feeling a sense of accomplishment and pride at having their artwork on display. The exhibition was a great success and engaged the local community in Chinese culture and traditions. Those taking part would agree that creative and cultural participation is a key contributor to wellbeing and an improved quality of life. We would like to give a big thank you to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Sefton Park Palm House for hosting the exhibition, Confucius Institute Liverpool for gifting a Festival calligraphy and our dedicated staff team and Arts Group for their wonderful contributions which made the exhibition such a success.
