The program aims to host comprehensive events that integrate tourism promotion, cultural exhibitions, business negotiations, and seminars.

Creativeness of Craftsmanship: The Beautiful Countryside by Design is a project curated and executed by Beijing Saisi Boyi Culture and Art Co., Ltd. (directly affiliated with the Center of International Cultural Exchange) and Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. Based on the research on rural cultural resources by fine arts academies from the perspective of creative design in recent years, the project aims at reinventing rural craftsmanship and catalyzing rural development. By discovering the pathway to rural revitalization, the project reveals the idyllic beauty of the countryside, unveiling the “sweep changes” of China’s rural landscape in the new development stage.
The beauty of the countryside exists in the picturesque natural scenery and the rich folk customs inherited from generation to generation. There are ancient handicrafts, myths and fairy tales passed down orally, and traditional music, drama and time-honored production and living customs. These intangible cultural heritages carry the cultural memory of all ethnic groups, and they are the spiritual home worth protecting.
The “Beautiful Countryside and Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection” video exhibition selects five beautiful villages from all over China – Qingyang in Gansu, Leishan in Guizhou, Huayuan in Hunan, Nimu in Tibet and Fugong in Yunnan, and introduces their new stories that are full of life with the efforts of inheritors and protectors. Ancient Chinese poets said that the place where made me feel ease was my hometown. The beautiful countryside now is becoming the dream land for more and more urbanites.
