Nature and Tradition, the Focal Point of Developing Prairie Culture

The grand sense, unique history and arts of Inner Mongolia presented the visitors with an honest, passionate, strong and enterprising impression of its culture.

Concerning the essence of prairie culture, participants agreed natural characteristics and tradition are the focal points for cultural inheriting and development, instead of pursuing economic benefits.

He Jiping, Chairwoman of Hong Kong Screenewriter’s Guild, suggested “beauty is in nature”. She believed the most beautiful art comes from nature as beauty is in nature. Artistic creation yearns for nature, which is what we lack. Nature is a sanitarium in which vulgar thoughts can be washed away. Going against it would cause loss of art, turning truth into lies.
