天涯共此时,海外庆中秋

——阿德莱德大学孔子学院助力澳亚艺术节中秋灯会文化展
        当地时间9月18日,又是一年花好月圆日。澳亚艺术节于托伦斯河畔举办了一场热闹非凡的中秋灯会文化展,活动当天,约有两万多民众欢聚一堂共庆佳节。
        澳亚艺术节是澳大利亚当代规模最大且影响深远的年度艺术盛会,致力于关注并推广亚洲文化。阿德莱德大学孔子学院作为此次活动的协办方之一,应邀参加了此次庆中秋灯会文化展,并为游客们准备了丰富的文化体验活动。
        18日下午两点,中秋灯会文化展准时举行。天空虽然飘着濛濛细雨,阿德莱德大学孔子学院的书法展位前却早已摩肩接踵,游客们都渴望得到一份特殊的“中国式”礼物——一副工整、娟秀的书法纪念品。志愿者们挥毫笔墨,将游客的英文名翻译成汉字,书写在装帧精美的宣纸上。
        此外,阿德莱德大学孔子学院还专门设置了书法体验区,游客们可以在一笔一划的学习中体验中国书法的无穷魅力。绘画展位前也排起了长长的队伍,志愿者们根据游客的年龄和喜好即兴创作水墨画,有娇艳欲滴的牡丹和腾云驾雾的飞龙等等。
        而展位前的民族乐器展示区也吸引了众多游客的目光。二胡悠扬、古筝清丽,两者的演奏交相辉映,完美诠释了中国音乐之美。每曲结束之后,游客们都报以热烈的掌声。许多小朋友都按捺不住内心的喜爱,纷纷走上前,在志愿者的帮助下,尝试演奏简单的旋律。中秋灯会文化展结束时,许多游客仍聚集在展位前不愿离去。
        通过活动,阿德莱德大学孔子学院不仅为海外华人带来一份思乡的慰藉,同时也为世界各地的友人展现了一个魅力的中国。
        澳亚艺术节期间,阿德莱德大学孔子学院还准备了一系列丰富的活动。有来自香港的SIU2乐队表演,阿德莱德地下乐队与亚洲各国地下乐队的混奏,以及来自北京滕继萌教授的公开讲座,都将从不同角度用多种方式展现中国文化艺术之美,为本地市民提供多样化视角走近中国。

李潇娇:山东济南人,现居阿德莱德。2010年她来到阿德莱德孔子学院实习。一来到阿德莱德,她就爱上了这个美丽的城市,尤其是它浓重历史色彩的建筑。她走过阿德莱德的大大小小的街道,特色的咖啡店、饭店、礼堂,都是她笔下的风景。
