Join China Institute on Friday, November 2, for a professional development workshop on discussing how to develop ICC through visual images. This workshop is in conjunction with the China Institute Gallery exhibition, Art of the Mountain: Through the Chinese Photographer’s Lens.

Following a theoretic discussion on Developing ICC Through Visual Images led by Prof. Lixing Tang in April, two presenters at this workshop will showcase how they engage students into exploring the connections of images with their daily lives, as well as embedded cultural meanings of photos in the “Art of the Mountain” exhibition. Based on the IMAGE Model, various applications, including galley tour, group discussions and building personal photo gallery, will be examined at the workshop to investigate, analyze, and reflect the relationship between cultural products and practices with cultural perspectives.
