25 May 2014
Would your pupils like an outing?
The Confucius Institute for Scotland at the University of
Edinburgh wants to make sure that all SCEN members are aware of a
superb exhibition on Poster Art of Modern China which will run from
6th June to 12th July 2014 in Adam House, Chambers Street,
The exhibition is open daily from 10am-6pm, and entry is free. Frances Christensen, General Manager, says that it is eminently suitable for middle and senior phase school students.
Frances says that the exhibition gives a comprehensive overview of China's history across the last century via a highly accessible medium, comprising as it does 133 original posters on loan from the Propaganda Poster Art Centre, Shanghai.
Please see the microsite www.confuciusinstitute.ac.uk/posters for more
idea of the content. There is a wealth of useful information
in the More Information section.
As well as an e-flyer for the exhibition which you might wish to use to make your students aware of this exhibition, also attached is a letter which gives information about special group tours for schools - also free but booking requested.
