活动伊始,外专们参观了天津市西青区档案馆,在讲解员与翻译老师的带领下,了解天津市西青区的发展历史与传统民俗文化,学一学精武英雄的“霍家拳”,比一比谁的天津话更“哏儿”,丰富的体验互动环节给外专们留下了深刻的印象。

了解完西青区的文化历史后,外专们走进杨柳青古镇,在领略了“华北第一宅”石家大院汉族传统民居建筑之精妙后,又一起参观了杨柳青年画馆,欣赏经典的杨柳青年画作品,并在杨柳青年画传承人霍庆顺的带领下一窥杨柳青年画纷繁巧妙的制作工艺。正月十五的古镇,节日气氛浓厚,人们携伴而行,欢声笑语不断,外专们也跟随着队伍观看民俗表演,品鉴传统小吃,他们或拍照留念,或与家人连线分享沿途风景,古镇的热闹景象让大家流连忘返。

最后,外专们一起品尝了由交流处精心准备的传统美食——元宵,团圆幸福的美好寓意,让外专们倍感温暖。

此次活动的举办,向我校外国专家展示了中国传统佳节文化魅力,介绍了天津市的民俗文化活动,增强了外国专家的归属感与融入感。

What seems interesting from Yangliuqing ancient town is the amount of details rooted in buildings, where animals and mythology are meant to have a specific meaning that reaches daily life and is a reflection of the wish for prosperity and luck. The amount and level of details clearly shows how architecture is meant to be a reflect of culture and how they hoped it would stand the passing of time.

Although I had been to Yangluqing before, I had never never been to the museums. Our first stop was the Xiqing District Archives. What stood out for me was the dinosaur head and the other exhibits dredged from the earth as the canal was being built. It was remarkable to see the evidence of how this trading city evolved. I’m not sure if the Archives are open to the public but if you have the chance, the interactive exhibits of paintings and the audio recordings of Chinese phrases in the local dialect will keep you engaged. Then we proceeded to Yangliuqing Museum and Ancient Town where a rare treat was to meet an artist at work who was kind enough to give us the opportunity to create our own Yangliuqing New Year artwork. The Shi family house is a unique memory of times past. Thanks to the English-speaking guide we were able to pick out artistic details in the architecture which I had previously missed and have a richer experience of the way of life of a wealthy merchant in the Qing era. Of course no Nanskai cultural outing is complete without a visit to a restaurant to indulge in delicious food. All in all, a stimulating afternoon.
