Future: traditions meet modernity

Fan Di’an, director of the Central Academy of Fine Arts and member of the national committee of CPPCC, insisted that the industrialization of traditional culture should not be overstressed. “Not only the architecture, the historical ambience and local customs are also priceless resources in ancient villages, local citizens should be engaged into safeguarding the cultural heritages,” he said.

Scholars indicate that adaptation of traditions into modern society is crucial for their development. Recently, an exhibition held in Fujian province amazed the viewers by its creative design to carve paper-cut patterns onto furniture, to turn pottery into goblets and lacquer ware to decorations of handbags.

During the two sessions, proposals concerning cultural heritage and arts innovation drew the attention of leaders, legislators, educators and people from all walks of life. It signifies a rising awareness of Chinese civilization and spiritual heritage. The future of traditional culture is bright though there is still a long way to go.
