Members Forum & Talk about China’s Ethnic Minorities

  • Thursday 9 November 2017 at 11:00 to 13:00

  • Venue: The Danish Club, Mijas

  • Lecturer: Yvonne Sjokvist

Welcome to our Member’s Forum at the Danish Club.

We begin with a short forum for your feed-back on some Society matters and the progress of our 30th Anniversary plans. We end the session with an illustrated talk entitled ‘China’s Ethnic Minorities – A Unique and Colourful World’ in which we will learn about the country’s most culturally diverse and scenically spectacular region and some of its many vibrant ethnic minorities each with their distinct customs and traditions. Wind and rain bridges, drum towers, love songs about feckless lovers, the world’s only living pictographic script, “walking marriages”, tea more expensive than gold, a forgotten trade route etc will be covered. The talk will be given by Yvonne Sjokvist.
