Part Three: “Guizhou and the word symphony”forum

 “Guizhou and the word symphony” forum arranged by CMIA (Culture Multimedia International Association) brought together a series of international experts from Russia, India, Brazil, Israel, Iran and the Philippines that intertwined artwork, crafts and the appreciation of distinct differences in cultures to new educational initiatives that will bridge the gap between rural, ethnic, and fast disappearing cultures to the modern urban world of globalization.  As one lecturer from India put it, “We are uniquely different and universally alike.”  This realization has encouraged UNESCO and China to recognize the dire need to preserve this uniqueness found in languages, traditions, and cultures to insure an understanding of ourselves and the beauty in the world around us.








The international teamwork displayed by China in hosting and producing the China (Guizhou) International Folk Crafts & Cultural Products Festival in Guiyang is a business model for expanding understanding in other areas in China where specific minority cultural festivals can be organized to increase prosperity and build a more harmonious relationship between its own cultural minorities and the urban centers.
