DIY Russian матрёшка Workshop
Commonly known to many as Matryoshka dolls or Russian Dolls, these wooden figurines that sit one inside another are beautifully decorated to look like women in traditional dresses. Today, these famous dolls depict not only women but also famous people or characters. Join this workshop to try your hand at painting your own ones while learning about the history and culture behind them.
*To complete your registration, please pay the deposit at the Office of Student Affairs on 1/F Benjamin Franklin Centre during office hours (Mon-Fri: 9:00am-1:00pm, 2:00pm-5:30pm).
Chinese Diaspora Experiences
The Chinese diaspora has spread around the world and has embedded itself in virtually all societies on earth, connected through business, culture and history. What do Singaporean, Malaysian, Thai, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Filipino, Australian, Canadian or American Chinese have in common and what makes them different? How do their new homes shape their sense of belonging? Together with our guests, we will enrich our own understanding of what it can mean to be Chinese.
