Hubei is slated to kick off cultural festival from April 13 to May 8 in Germany, including a series of activities like lacquer exhibition and variety performances, which aim to further the cultural exchange between Hubei and Germany.

Hubei has a long history of lacquer culture and gave birth to a large number of exquisite Chu-Han lacquer wares. The lacquer exhibition, brought by Hubei Museum of Art, will display 27 selected collections (13 lacquer paintings and 14 lacquer wares).

The variety performance, a hybrid of Hubei folk songs, martial arts show, modern dance and folk music instrument demonstrations will give a fresh feeling to the German audience.

In accordance with unified arrangements of China’s Ministry of Culture, Hubei Provincial Department of Culture and Chinesisches Kulturzentrum Berlin will carry out all-out cooperation this year. With the launching of Hubei Cultural Festival in April, the two sides will co-organize a variety of exchange activities through the year, such as the cultural and creative products week, Peking opera highlights show, drama performances and seminar given by renowned authors.
