The second Saturday of June marks China’s Cultural Heritage Day. To celebrate this important occasion, CHP organized its biggest fundraising event of the year, Capital Conversations: China’s Cultural Connections, at the award-winning restaurant Capital M on historic Qianmen.

Moderated by Former Vice Chairman of Ogilvy China, Larry Rinaldi, China’s Cultural Connections focused on the everyday, tangible connections that can be made to Beijing’s ancient past through language, fashion design, and the structural environment. Amy Lelyveld, associate professor of Yale School of Architecture shared with the audience the interpretation of cultural heritage through architecture; Dr. Chen Fu, professor of Linguistics from Beijing Normal University revealed the transformation of Chinese language; and Sun Xuefei, professor of Fashion Design, Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology highlighted hidden secrets found in traditional Chinese clothing.
