COPENHAGEN Dalvin Tomlinson Giants Jersey , June 10 (Xinhua) -- The on-going cooperation between Denmark and China's cultural authorities will result in highly-anticipated cultural centers in both countries this year.
Situated at Hans Christian Andersen Boulevard, right in the heart of Copenhagen, a newly-painted yellow building has been particularly attracting public attention here. This is where the new Chinese Culture Center will be located, after its grand opening on June 11.
The building which was designed by the architect Christian L. Thuren and erected in 1906, has until recently housed the Royal Danish Academy of Music.
Asked why to choose Denmark as the first Nordic country to build a Chinese Culture Center, Li Jinsheng, Cultural Counselor of the Chinese Embassy in Denmark Evan Engram Giants Jersey , told Xinhua that China and Denmark had developed excellent bilateral relations in these years, and "now it is the best period in history."
Li noted that Danish culture was unique. "Chinese people are especially interested in Danish culture. The very first Dane we got to know is Hans Christian Andersen, who has a great influence in China. Moreover, Danish modern design, environmental protection and green development concepts are also very popular in China. So for bilateral relations, cultural exchange and complementarity, Copenhagen is just a natural choice Women's Aldrick Rosas Jersey ," he said.
China and Denmark have had considerable development in humanities recently. Prominent universities like Copenhagen University and Aarhus University have begun offering Chinese as a major. With joint effort, the Confucius Institute for business, innovation and music has been established in Denmark as well.
Chinese language has become an option in Danish middle schools; some schools even make Chinese language courses mandatory. Even the Danish royal family has a Chinese version of its official website. Chinese people have got to know Denmark a lot more, and choose to study or travel to Denmark more than ever.
In the spring of 2010, the statue of Little Mermaid was brought to the Shanghai World Expo 2010 as a token of friendship between Denmark and China, which also marked the first time the statue left its perch at Copenhagen harbor in almost a century.
The 2,434-square-meter building was home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music for over 100 years Women's B.J. Goodson Jersey , within a stone's throw of the New Carlsberg Sculpture Museum and the world's second most popular seasonal theme park, Tivoli.
Li views the purchase of this historic building as a coincidence. "A lot of people asked if we have chosen this building because it is located on H. C. Andersen Boulevard, as H.C. Andersen is well known in China. As a matter of fact, it is quite by chance, a pure coincidence," he said with smile, adding that the location and the deep cultural atmosphere around makes the building a fantastic choice.
He stressed the importance of the functionality as well. "The building of the Royal Danish Academy of Music has a large concert hall which suits our needs well. It was a building of music and a building of culture Women's Bobby Hart Jersey , so the new Chinese Cultural Center is a kind of culture inheritance."
The cultural center, a non-profit institution, will be used as a library, for exhibitions, concerts and education, Li said.
"The Chinese cultural center has three main functions. First of all, it will be an information center with a library that contains all kinds of information about China. If Danes want to get to know China without going abroad Women's Calvin Munson Jersey , the Chinese culture center will be the first choice."
"It will also be served as a platform for cultural activities such as concerts, lectures, seminars and exhibitions. Last but not least, it will be a training facility. Like many other culture centers have language classes, this center will also offer Chinese language education, calligraphy, Chinese painting Women's Kerry Wynn Jersey , and so on," Li explained.
He said the center will function based on the local situation and actual needs. "As long as there is demand from the public, we will try our best to fulfill the need," he said confidently.
Apart from showcasing Chinese culture and history, the center will also promote Chinese contemporary art and the achievements of contemporary culture development.
"Chinese contemporary art has attracted a lot of attention. In order to find more in common, we will also show contemporary artistic achievement to promote dialogue among civilizations. We are open to all kinds of Chinese art as long as it is good and useful for the Chinese people and our mutual relationship," said Li Women's Orleans Darkwa Jersey , referring to the focus and direction of the center's future work.
Besides, the cultural center will focus on activities that promote ideas exchange and cultural fusion. Li said: "The collision of different ideas usually enable us to learn from each other, and often lead to further understanding, trust, and strengthening friendship."
According to the bilateral agreement, a Danish Culture Center will also soon be established in Beijing. Moreover, Denmark is also planning to launch Danish culture season all over China from October 2014 to May 2015 Women's Brandon Marshall Jersey , which will be the largest culture events to date Denmark has organized overseas.
"Chinese are truly interested about sharing their culture. I was, therefore, pleased to sign an agreement with the Chinese Minister of Culture on Dec. 5 last year, when we agreed to strengthen relations," said Marianne Jelved, Denmark's Minister of Culture, in comments made to Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
"We must see China's purchase of the old Academy of Music as a tribute to Denmark ... and this will indeed strengthen ties Women's Ereck Flowers Jersey ," she added.
From the Danish government to the society, everyone welcomes the Chinese cultural center, Jelved added.
