first_imgThe Notre Dame Chinese Students & Scholars Association (NDCSSA) will host a celebration in honor of the Chinese New Year tonight from 7-9 p.m., in Washington Hall.According to its website, the NDCSSA was created in 1991 as a “non-profit and non-political organization of all Chinese students and scholars.” NDCSSA is the largest foreign students and scholars club at Notre Dame with over 400 members.NDCSSA president Bo Hong said the first Chinese New Year Gala on campus took place in 1992 and moved to its current venue, Washington Hall in 2009.“The content of the gala is different every year,” Hong said. “Generally, there will be Chinese traditional choreography, traditional instrument performance, history drama, pop song singing, Fashion shows — including modern style and Chinese traditional costumes of different dynasties in Chinese history — playing games with the audience, and so forth.”This year’s celebration marks the beginning of the Year of the Goat. Hong said the Chinese Spring Festival, or Lunar New Year, is based on the lunar calendar and can be traced back thousands of years.“Legend has it that the Emperor invented the calendar in 2637 B.C.,” Hong said. “It was recorded that Chinese started to celebrate Chinese New Year from about 2000 B.C. They started to celebrate on the first day of the lunar calendar based on Emperor Wu Di’s almanac of the Han Dynasty.”Hong said this celebration recognized and responded to a mythical beast called Nian.“The beast Nian could infiltrate houses silently to prey on humans,” Hong said. “To keep Nian away, red-paper couplets are pasted on doors, torches are lit, and firecrackers are set off throughout the night, because Nian is said to fear the color red, the light of fire, and loud noises.”Hong said the Koreans and Vietnamese also celebrate their New Years on the same day.“In Vietnam, the first three days [of the New Year] are public holidays,” Hong said. “A few countries around the world regularly issue postage stamps or numismatic coins to commemorate Chinese New Year.”These countries — including Australia, Canada, Christmas Island, El Salvador, France, the Phillipines and the U.S. — recognize the significant number of their citizens who are of Chinese origin in their tribute to the Chinese New Year. Hong said this recognition is similar to the NDCSSA’s objective in hosting the gala.The Chinese New Year Gala is open to all students, whether or not they are part of the NDCSSA, and attendees are welcome to leave early or stay as long as they want. Admission is free.Tags: Chinese, Chinese New Year, lunar new year, NDCSSA, Notre Dame Chinese Students & Scholars Associationlast_img read more

first_imgAnd finally, as I pointed out at the beginning, at a time when self-isolation is needed, many will reach for various internet content, and virtual walks or museums have become a real hit.  Get out of the box and be different – today it is imperative, because the noise in communication is getting bigger and bigger day by day. While it is much easier to say and write than to do or make, often the best ideas are those simple, logical, and natural at first. This is exactly the genius of the same, and behind them are hours and hours of creative thinking. VIRTUAL WALKS THROUGH CROATIAN MUSEUMS AND EXHIBITIONS So this time a great example of communication and creative thinking, takes us to Los Angeles, where the famous Getty Museum is along the way Twitter launched a great challenge #BetweenArtandQuarantine, which immediately went viral. The result is ingenious, and the challenge is practically just starting, so an avalanche of interesting and funny photos awaits us. Explore new “artwork” on your own #BetweenArtandQuarantine However, in Lijepa naša we have excellent examples of communication of a museum on social networks. So the Vinkovci City Museum on its own Facebook profile he often comically and satirically comments on various archaeological objects and thus attracts a mass of followers. Completely unofficial site of the Vinkovci City Museum What is a fact is that at the moment everyone is online, more than ever, and some in this situation see their opportunity to further position and expand their user base. That is why now is the time to take advantage of all the benefits that the internet brings us. Even though museums don’t work, that doesn’t mean they aren’t still “alive” Also, another great example comes to us from the same museum. Namely, through short video materials, the curator of the museum gives certain paintings (op.a museum exhibits) a broader picture and narrative, I give them a soul and a wider dimension, and tells the story behind each painting and artist. And again, storytelling is the most important and powerful tool. Although at the moment, unfortunately, it is out of place to talk about tourism in this situation, that does not mean that we should not stop communicating on social networks. From “ordinary” and at first to laymen “uninteresting” exhibits, the communicators from the Museum attract the attention of a wider audience with funny comments. To make matters more absurd, even the Museum had problems with misunderstanding this type of communication, so they had to open a new FB page: Completely unofficial site of the Vinkovci City Museum, where it is clearly indicated that this is an “unofficial” FB page of the museum. Getty FB Museum Explore virtual walks of Croatian museums and exhibitions below attached. When we talk about tourism, the narrative is that now is the ideal time to explore, discover and plan future travel, ie compile a kind of bucket list. Also, it is fascinating how in these crisis and difficult times, despite everything, the current situation draws the best out of people through new creative ideas. Namely, the museum invited or rather challenged their companions to make copies or recreate some of the art paintings from the museum, while using everyday objects from their home, respecting the measure of #ostanidoma. This is another phenomenal example of how the Museum went beyond its framework, attracted a wider and younger audience and thus interested them in art. This is exactly what our museums are chronically lacking. Thinking outside the box, almost always, pays off, and you get virality, media attention and new users / customers. Take Museum Getty fulfills its mission perfectly and credibly through the slogan “Bringing people together through art”. An excellent example of communication and promotion and popularization of art and the museum itself to a wider audience. Art is for everyone! Of course if we tell a story and have an interesting narrative, as in everything. Get out of the box, be different PS Do we have any more domestic positive examples?
