Multiculturalism Development and Culture Expression

"The focus for the post - 2015 agenda must fall on the priority of advancing quality education for all -- widening access, ensuring equality and inclusiveness, and promoting education for global citizenship and sustainable development. Education in the mother language is an essential part of achieving these goals -- to facilitate learning and to bolster skills in reading, writing and mathematics. " - Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director General (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization)

Discover the significance of multiculturalism in Canada – ensuring that all citizens keep their identities, take pride in their ancestry and have a sense of belonging.

HXMS culture development program is mainly project and event based and supported by provincial agency and local cities. Such as the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture administers and City of Surrey. The governments policies include:

  • Promoting cross cultural understanding, respect, attitudes and perceptions that lead to harmony among British Columbians of every race, cultural heritage, religion, ethnicity, ancestry and place of origin;
  • Fostering the ability of each British Columbian, regardless of race, cultural heritage, religion, ethnicity, ancestry or place of origin, to share in the economic, social, cultural and political life of British Columbia; and
  • Reaffirming that violence, hatred and discrimination on the basis of race, cultural heritage, religion, ethnicity, ancestry or place of origin have no place in the society of British Columbia.

Calligraphy (書法/书法)

Chinese calligraphy is a form of aesthetically pleasing writing (calligraphy), or, the artistic expression of human language in a tangible form. This type of expression has been widely practiced in China and has been generally highly esteemed in the Chinese cultural sphere (including, historically, for example, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam). There are some general standardizations of the various styles of calligraphy in this tradition. Chinese calligraphy and ink and wash painting are closely related: they are accomplished using similar tools and techniques, and have a long history of shared artistry. Distinguishing features of Chinese painting and calligraphy include an emphasis on motion charged with dynamic life.
