Nordic Cultrual Activities

Drawn on the resources and assistances from the Consulates of the 5 Nordic countries as well as the Nordic Society from the Fudan University, the Nordic Centre manage to deliver a series of exciting and informative activities that not only bring close the Nordic and Chinese participants but also greatly enhance their knowledge and understanding of each another’s culture and life-style. In general, our cultural activates could be roughly divided into 4 categories.

  • National Day
  • Film Festival, Movie Night and photo exhibition
  • Literature Festival and Book Launches
  • Concerts and others
National Day
A glimpse into the national culture through vivid presentation in one day
For years the Nordic Centre has (co)organised an one-day promotion of the national images of the Nordic countries in the name of the "National Day" , such as the Sweden Day, Finland Day or Denmark Day.
Usually the National Day provide an multi-faced presentation of the culture of a certain Nordic Country as well as a space where the Noridc Univerisites and enterprises meet the Chinese students. All kinds of interesting games and performances are included in order to bring to focus the very essense of the national spirit.   
Nordic Film Festival & Movie Night
A delightful bite of Nordic art and sensibility through moving images
Together with the Nordic consulates in Shanghai, the Nordic Centre launched its first Film Festival in mid-June 2012, which provided a great opportunity for the Chinese spectators to familiarize themselves with Nordic films and culture. The four films selected for the event are one of a kind, ranging from biographical film to youth film, from documentary of real-life story to award-winning artistic presentation of serious social issues. These films were very well received among the students and caused a series of discussions online.
In addition to the large-scale film festival, the Nordic Centre often organises various Movie Night from time to time with the Nordic Society in an effort to promote mutual understanding and friendship between Chinese and Nordic students. 
Literature Festival and Book Launches
An enlightening journey into the Scandinavian literature and spirituality
The Nordic Centre often invites famous writers from the Nordic Countries to come to the campus of Fudan University to have lecture as well as wonderful discussions with Fudan students. Even Nobel Laureate and their books have launched their first Chinese version here. 
Concerts and others
