Chinese Culture Sharing

The Chinese Culture Sharing project is part of the Nottingham University Business School's Community Engagement programme.  This project is delivered in primary schools and more recently in community settings. This new element of the project offers Chinese students the opportunity to visit organisations such as care homes and day centres to share their culture and is part of the Nottingham Advantage Award.

The students involved develop their own activities based on Chinese Culture, according to the requirements of the organisations and the abilities of its members. Many of the activities are craft based such as making Chinese lanterns or Peking Opera masks, others might involve games or looking at pictures and discussing landmarks and the history and culture of China.

These sessions have been very well received by our organisations and they provide an excellent opportunity for some of our Chinese students to learn about British culture, meet new people and develop their own skills and experiences.  For more of an insight you might want to read one of our blogs about the students' visits to a Nottingham day centre for older people.

Please note that this particular programme is NOT running during 2017. Do look out for further updates here. In the meantime, if you are looking for volunteers to similar things like this to your organisation you might want to contact our Student Volunteer Centre to see if they can help.  You can email them at

Please email Jill Bennett or call 0115 8467720 with any further queries.
