ACT8 - Chinese paper cuts

The Spring Festival is the most important festival in China. People usually decorate the doors and windows with red papercuts, because red means good luck.

There are still many old people mastering the precious technique, but young people usually like to follow the western living style and don't have interest in traditional things. So traditional handmade paper cuts are just fading away.

Of course we can survive without those things in the future. But it would be a shame to loose such a technique with over 1400 years history. In my opinion its very important to keep those traditions alive, so people over the world can identify themself with their people and country.

The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
