Youth Cultural Exchange Kicks off in New York

The 2014 U.S.-China Youth International Culture Festival takes place this August to promote friendship and cultural exchange between the youth of these two countries. Hosted by the Sino-American Friendship Association (SAFA) and Sino-American Culture & Arts Foundation (SACAF), and co-sponsored by China National Tourist Office (CNTO), events include baseball games, music performances and other arts and cultural exchanges. On Saturday, August 2, “An Evening of Chinese Culture” took place at the New York Mets game, where a number of Chinese community leaders were honored. The stadium’s more than 40,000 fans were also treated to videos about China that played in the stadium throughout the game. That same week, nearly 200 students visiting from China met with more than 100 students from Tottenville High School in Staten Island, New York to begin a week-long exchange program. The Tottenville High School Marching Band performed, as did some of the visiting students from China. Overall, these events – from baseball to music and more – provided a good access point for the Chinese and American youth to connect. With successful events such as these, educational and cultural exchange between the U.S. and China continues to deepen.
