Changzhou Museum & Cultural delegation in Essex
Colchester Chinese Culture Society worked with Essex Cultural Diversity Project who received funding from the British Council’s UK-China Connections through Culture Grants, to develop partnerships with the Changzhou Museum, Arts and Cultural Centre in Jiangsu Province, China.
CCCS hosted the Changzhou Museum & Cultural delegation in July 2018 in Essex when the group visited the V&A, Essex Record Office and met with Cultural Development officers from Essex County Council.
The funding supported a Research and Development visit to China to help us develop further links. It has supported collaborative ways of working, as well as opportunities for Essex based artists to visit China, through the planning and development of a festival celebrating Chinese culture in Essex in partnership with the Colchester Chinese Culture Society.
