ASC Moment | 领略中华传统文化魅力,体验不同寻常的科学之旅

 “我爱中文”

“我喜欢中国人热爱自己的文化和传承传统的方式”

“此时此刻,我特别想与我的母亲一起分享这份经历”

……

 

本届亚洲科学夏令营和往届有何不同?

 

当然不同啦!由于今年是首次在中国大陆举行,亲身体验丰富多彩、博大精深的中华文化当然是少不了的一环!

 

连日来,活动组委会精心设置了太极俱乐部、非物质文化遗产项目展示、本地文化采风等多个环节,给营员们带来了“探索中国”的独特体验。

 

 

 

 

太极俱乐部

 

 


 

夏令营期间,每天早晨七点,广东以色列理工学院篮球场上的太极俱乐部都会如约而至,来自不同国家和地区、有着不同肤色、讲着不同语言的营员们聚在一起,探索“中国功夫”的独特魅力。

 

 

 

作为国家级非物质文化遗产的太极拳,是一种刚柔相济的中国传统拳术。一部《功夫熊猫》让各个国家的年轻人知道了太极,但很多人都是这次参加夏令营才第一次亲身体验,都感觉很有趣。

 

“要学太极学到博大精深,短短四天时间远远不够。但只要他们知道太极是什么,太极体现中华文化的优雅从容、重视内在气息就已经很宝贵了。”太极俱乐部的授课者之一、樊林君老师说。

 

 

八段锦、太极拳、太极扇……不一样的“中国功夫”让人印象深刻。“太极是一种放松的方式,这次回国后我将会开始练习太极。” 来自澳大利亚的营员Zofia witkowski-blake说。

 

 

中国传统文化体验

 

 

 

7月30日下午,精彩的非物质文化遗产展示走进亚洲科学夏令营。广东以色列理工学院教学楼连廊下,剪纸、潮绣、珠绣、嵌瓷、木雕、盔头、内画、壁画等多个摊位被围得里三层、外三层,来自亚洲各国的营员们纷纷驻足观看,动手尝试创作。

 

 

 

来自菲律宾的Marjana Ysabella Oabel Montanez同学在嵌瓷工艺品前伫立许久,频繁拿出手机拍照留念。Mariana表示,她最喜欢嵌瓷工艺。我觉得嵌瓷是所有工艺品中最别具特色的一个。”

 

这位小哥哥Ismail Cem Cidem来自土耳其,“尽管我也喜欢其他工艺品,但最喜欢还是剪纸。它可以培养我的耐心和毅力。”他在现场拿起剪刀开始尝试:“动手实践能让你更贴切地感受到中国传统文化的魅力。”

 

 

 

在盔头工艺品摊位前,来自中国台湾的Juang Min-CHEN同学非常仔细地观察着头饰上的装饰品。本次夏令营在科学知识的普及之外,更多了一些文化气息,让她印象深刻。“有时间静下心来欣赏美好的艺术,不仅能让我们提升自身艺术素养,而且也是一种对保护传统文化的呼吁。”

 

 

文化采风

 

 

 

为深入了解本地的潮汕文化特色,7月31日,全体营员前往陈慈黉故居和百师园等地参观。实地展览和动手实践极大地拓展了营员们对潮汕文化的认识。


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

我的爷爷是潮州人,陈慈黉又是在泰国很有名的人,所以这次参观对我来说很有意义。

我去过杭州、苏州等很多城市,但潮汕文化与其他文化很不一样。中国很大,各个地方的文化都有很大不同。

-Vasilii Pavlov(俄罗斯)

 

 

我在俄罗斯出生,我们的文化较少重视工艺品的制作,我们会做一些比较实用的东西来抵御俄罗斯的寒冬。

-Petr Shendrik(以色列)

 

 

我觉得城市文化采风活动非常有意义。在活动开展前,我就已经对珠绣有所耳闻。这是第一次亲自动手实践,非常激动。此时此刻,我特别想与母亲一起分享这份经历。

-Tom Arnold(澳大利亚)

 

 

这次夏令营有许多来自不同国家的营员,无论是从文化上还是从科学交流上,对我来说都是个很好的学习机会。

-Miyata Asaka(日本)

 

 

我特别喜欢中文,来中国之前我已经在学校自学了很多!我最喜欢刺绣,尤其喜欢动物刺绣。

-Zofia Tallulah Witkowski-Blake(澳大利亚) 

 

 

 

自从第一天到中国,我就感受到中国人对自己的文化和语言有着特殊的感情。采风活动使我的印象更加深刻。看到他们如此热情地介绍自己的历史,想让所有人都爱上中国,真是特别难忘。我喜欢中国人热爱自己的文化和传承传统的方式。因为有这样的人民,才有了如此独特的中华文化。

On July 29th, the opening ceremony of 13th Asian Science Camp was held at GTIIT. Since the opening ceremony, ASC has provided a lot of activities for students to experience the colorful Chinese culture.

 

 

 

Tai Chi Club

 

 

 

 

During the summer camp, every morning the activity of Tai Chi Club was comingat 7:00. Students from different countries and regions got together, exploring the charm of Tai Chi.

 

 

 

As a national intangible cultural heritage, Tai Chi is a Chinese traditional boxing alternating kindness with severity. The movie Kung Fu Panda has brought this martial art to the world, but it was the first time for most campers to practice it.

 

"Four days is not enough to have a deep understanding of Tai Chi. But the most precious thing is that students can know the spirit of China which contained staying calm and attaching importance to the internal," said FAN Linjun, one of the teachers in Tai Chi Club.

 

The experience of practicing eight trigrams boxing, Tai Chi Boxing and Tai Chi Fan was really impressive.

 

"Tai Chi is a way of ralaxation and I will continue practicing when I come back," Zofia witkowski-blake from Australia said.

 

 

Chinese Traditional Culture Club

 

 

 

On the afternoon of July 30, exhibition of fascinating intangible cultural heritage was held. In the outdoor corridor near the GTIIT Education Building, campers from various countries and regions were attracted by the paper-cut, Chao embroidery, beading embroidery, ceramic inlays of Daliao, Chaozhou woodcarving, producing head ornaments for Chaozhou Opera, inner bottle painting and fresco painting of Luxi. They had a deeper understanding of Chaoshan intangible cultural heritage both in theory and practice with their imagination and creativity.

 

 

 

Marjana Ysabella Oabel Montanez, a student from Philippines, stood for a long time in front of the ceramic inlay crafts and took photos frequently. Mariana said she liked ceramic inlays best because they were one of the most unique works.

 

Ismail Cem Cidem from Turkey said, "Although all the arts and crafts are brilliant, I favor paper cutting. It builds my patience and perseverance." He believed that hands-on practice can make him feel more about the charm of traditional Chinese culture.

 

Juang min-CHEN, a student from Taiwan, China, observed the decorations on the head ornaments carefully. She was impressed by the cultural ambience. "It's nice to have some time to settle down and appreciate beautiful art works." In addition, this activity can raise the awareness of protecting traditional culture.

 

 

Sightseeing and Excursions

 

 

 

In order to have a further understanding of Chaoshan culture, the ASC campers visited CHEN Cihong's Former Residence and Chaozhou Craft Master's Garden on July 31. Through viewing exhibitions and hand-on practice, the campers have a better understanding of Chaoshan culture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My grandfather is from Chaozhou, and CHEN Cihong is famous in Thailand. So I think the visit is very meaningful for me. 

-Tara from Thailand

 

I have been to so many cities in China such as Hangzhou and Suzhou, but Chaoshan culture is very different from them. China is so big that regional culture is disparate from others.

-Vasilii Pavlov from Russia

 

 

I was born in Russia. Actually in our culture, we don’t give much importance to craft-making. Instead we do make some useful things because winter is really cold.

-Petr Shendrik from Israel

 

 

I think cultural excursions are very meaningful. Before the summer camp, I have already heard about beading embroidery. This is my first trial in practice and I am so excited to share it with my mother.

-Tom Arnold from Australia

 

 

This summer camp has many participants from different countries. I think it is a great learning opportunity for me.

-Miyata Asaka from Japan

 

 

I have learnt Chinese at school already and I really addict to this language! Among these crafts, I like embroidery best, especially animal embroidery.

-Zofia Tallulah Witkowski-Blake from Australia

 

 

Since the first day of visiting China, I felt like Chinese people have very special respect for their own culture and language. The sightseeing tour made my impressions even bigger. It was really incredible to see how passionately they talk about their history and try to make all the people to fall in love with China. I like the way Chinese people treat their own traditions and take care of them. I think that's what makes their culture so unique - the people.

-Mariami Kharebava from Georgia
