The Confucius Institute at UWA connects Western Australians with Chinese language, Chinese culture and Chinese people.
We organise public events for major Chinese cultural celebrations such as Chinese New Year and the Mid-Autumn Festival, often featuring international performers. We also partner with local Chinese organisations to present visiting artists or speakers, for example we partnered with the Chung Wah Association to present a lecture by celebrated I-Ching instructor Zeng Yuqi in November 2016. More information can be found here.
An important part of our cultural line-up is the China in Conversation quarterly public lecture series, which features experts from China and Australia discussing China-related topics of public interest. More information can be found here.
For your local community festival or event we can offer workshops in calligraphy, paper-cutting, Tai Chi, Kung Fu and more. You can also bring your school or group to our Claremont campus for a Chinese experience day. Please contact us for more information.
In partnership with local organisations such as community libraries, we offer workshops for children at various locations throughout the metropolitan area during the school holidays.
