Fun With Colours & Numbers – Expressions of Beliefs

February 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm GMT

Chinese associate different meanings with different colours and numbers. What is lucky? What is forbidden? In this lecture named fun with colours and numbers, you will be introduced to some fun facts about Chinese people’s beliefs when it comes to colours and numbers. We will also be looking at how such beliefs influence Chinese art and fashion.
