A range of creative sorts will be brought to the public in this two-day celebration, these kinds of as photography, dancing, poetry, standard songs instruments, martial arts, and also dialogues involving Chinese and Bruneian artists. The five Chinese artists collaborating in the dialogues are from Beijing Portray Academy, which was founded in 1957 and is the biggest qualified painting academy in China. I feel that this pageant will make us sense the non secular splendor introduced by cultural exchanges from the bottom of our hearts.

Let me conclude by wishing the Brunei-China Artwork and Visible Society Pageant a finish results.
