Chinese Calligraphy bonds the heart of people
Chinese Calligraphy is the art of written Chinese in a stylish and artistic form. It unites the many Chinese languages by creating an important cultural and aesthetic bond. To explore this fascinating art, Talk Time Project Leader, Whitney Ferrare, organised a tour of the Chinese Calligraphy Exhibition at the Hong Kong Art Museum for 12 laryngectomees, their family, friends and 5 HKAOM volunteers last 16 August
We learnt so much from our laryngectomee friends who impressed us with their deep knowledge of Chinese Calligraphy, paintings and history. They revealed the secret to recognising the different writing styles and signature forms used by the classic writers. Our non-Chinese volunteers were equally fascinated by the elegant presentation of the Chinese characters in rows and columns. The tour ended too soon – there was still so much knowledge to share! All the participants are eagerly looking forward to the next museum visit.
Volunteers, Wendy Kwan said, “Today was a very fruitful tour. I enjoyed the chance to chat with the elderly while viewing the art. Thank you HKAOM for inviting us to volunteer at such an enjoyable cultural event.”
