Shao Zonghai, Honorary Professor of Macao Polytechnic University and former Dean of the Academy of Social Sciences of Chinese Culture University in Taiwan, Zhou Wengang, Member of the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Vice President of the Association of The Education University of Hong Kong, Director of the National Association for Hong Kong and Macao Studies, Member of the Expert Group of the Policy Group of the Chief Executive of the HKSAR Government, Han Wangxi, Second-level Inspector of the Publicity Department of the Shenzhen Municipal Party Committee and Director of the Shenzhen Innovation and Creative Design Development Office, and Lu Jia, Principal Cello of Macao Amusement Park, attended the seminar.
Shao Zonghai: Bringing cross-strait relations closer
Shao Zonghai said in his speech that it is not easy for the construction of the Greater Bay Area to usher in positive changes in both Hong Kong and Macao, and how to strengthen the attractiveness of the Greater Bay Area is the top priority. He said that the older generation talks about national nature and compatriot feelings, and now young people value opportunities and interests more, and the Greater Bay Area should seek the interests and development of more Taiwan compatriots.
In response to a question from a student from Taiwan, Shao Zonghai said: "I hope that the Greater Bay Area will have more opportunities to attract young people from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. He also said that the Taiwanese student's study in Guangdong shows that he is attracted by the Greater Bay Area and hopes to pass on the news and continue to bring cross-strait relations closer.
Zhou Wengang: Culture can move people's hearts
Chow Wengang shared his experiences in Guangdong, Macao and Hong Kong. Zhou Wengang said that since Hong Kong has a sound electoral system and "patriots governing Hong Kong", the cultural environment has undergone great changes, and the cultural industry has developed by leaps and bounds; After coming to Shenzhen, the richness of the cultural industry here made his eyes shine; Macau's concert hall also impressed Chow Wengang.
He said that culture can move people's hearts, especially excellent film and television music works and opera performances. If the Greater Bay Area can exert its own cultural influence, explore the cultural themes scattered in Chinese history, and tell Chinese stories well, I believe it will have a more brilliant effect.
Han Wangxi: "The benevolent is invincible" is the most outstanding characteristic of the Chinese nation
Han Wangxi said that the concept of "benevolence, righteousness, etiquette, wisdom and faith" in Confucian culture plays an important role in shaping traditional Chinese culture, especially Lingnan culture as a centralized representative. Chinese culture is world-renowned for its breadth and tolerance, not distinguished by blood, but by cultural identity, identifying with Chinese culture is Chinese, and "benevolent and invincible" is the best characteristic of the Chinese nation.
Talking about how to complete the creative transformation of Chinese traditional culture in the new era, he said that Chinese culture is a living culture, which is both Chinese and global. The establishment of a community of nations, a community with a shared future in Asia and a community with a shared future for mankind is the goal of further developing and inheriting Chinese culture.
Lv Jia: Use good art to build cultural identity
As a representative of Macao musicians in the new era, Lu Jia used Hong Kong music as an example to illustrate the enlightenment of music inheritance to the current cultural development of the Bay Area. He said that because of its unique originality, Hong Kong music not only spreads widely in the region, but also has withstood the test of time, representing Hong Kong culture and Chinese culture to a certain extent.
Lv Jia also said that when creating musical works, it is necessary to strive in the direction that best represents the regional culture, which is both typical and popular, and can be accepted and appreciated by the general public. And the most important thing is the sustainability of music, good works of art can form the collective memories of a generation or even generations, and when using music to spread Chinese culture, it is also easy to have more emotional resonance with the audience.
