Cultural events to be held to celebrate heritage day

A series of cultural events will be held to celebrate China's National Cultural Heritage Day, which falls Saturday this week.

A variety of cultural programs covering exhibition, public lecture and academic forum will be organized across the city to raise public awareness of cultural heritage.

The Shanghai Great World, a landmark architecture of the city, re-opened to public in March. From tomorrow to July 9, innovative stage productions, creative bazaar, folk arts exhibition and cultural competition will be hosted to explore and showcase time-honored values of intangible cultural heritage.

Local families are also invited to a light-hearted competition of Tai Chi. The Chinese traditional martial arts will be creatively combined with Chinese tea art performance and traditional Chinese folk music.

On Friday the international forum on the protection of intangible cultural heritage will be held at Shanghai Art and Design Academy.

Around 100 experts and scholars from Europe, Japan, South Korea and Egypt will share their expertise and experience in the preservation and revival of intangible cultural heritage.

Eight documentary series about the country's cultural heritage achievements will be aired on Dragon TV for a month.

On Saturday historic relic buildings of the city will be open to public for free. A painting exhibition will also provide visitors an insight into the buildings' history and unknown stories.
