CHP in 2009: A Year in Review

As 2009 came to a close, CHP had a chance to look back on what was another memorable year.

We completed our Traditional Courtyard Renovation Training Project, continued to develop our Cultural Heritage Trail Project, and launched our ethnic minority culture revitalization projects in Congjiang and A’er Village.

To raise awareness in both cultural heritage preservation and our work, CHP produced The Soul’s Paradise: Congjiang, a short movie on the Congjiang Archive project. In October 2009, the documentary was presented at the UNESCO Global Representative Conference at its headquarters in Paris. CHP also produced Number 24 Beizongbu Hutong: The Former Residence of Liang Sicheng and Lin Huiyin, a short movie to spread awareness about the protection of Liang Sicheng and Lin Huiyin’s former residence. We are also now fully utilizing the capabilities of popular Chinese and international social networking sites, including Douban, Kaixin, Facebook, Ammado and Twitter, to spread our cultural protection message both in China and overseas. In addition to our online communication, in 2009 we also distributed more than 1,800 copies of our Cultural Heritage Trail Maps, organized over ten Cultural Heritage Protection salons and lectures, and had over 500 people attend our events.

In the media, CHP made its presence felt in over twenty domestic and international media sources, with over a hundred articles written about us.

Although we only launched our domestic fundraising program recently, we have been making solid progress in this unfamiliar area. Our first fundraising event I Heritage: Folk Fusion at Houhai Lake was warmly received, and we have a number of exciting fundraising events lined up in 2010.

To finish off an important year for CHP, earlier this month we received funding from the Switzerland Embassy for our A’er Village Qiang Minority Culture Revitalization Project. This additional donation to the project will allow us to strengthen and expand the scope of the project.

We are excited to continue our successes well into 2010 and are thankful for all the help that our supporters continue to give us!
