BEIJING, Jan. 19 (Xinhuanet) -- The two-day forum "Global Design: Inspired by China" was held in Beijing Wednesday.
The forum attracted a group of noted media representatives, scholars, designers and artists to discuss the ever growing cultural exchanges between China and the world.
Key topics of the forum include opportunities provided to cultural development in an era of media convergence, and the inspirations that Chinese culture provides to global design and cultural industries.
During the forum, the website www.discoverychina.org.cn, focusing on creative Chinese culture, was launched.
The website aims to promote Chinese culture around the world through a series of new designs that contain Chinese cultural elements.
In the future, a top 100 list of leading international designers embracing Chinese culture will be released by the website every year.
Supported by the Cyberspace Administration of China, the forum was co-organized by China Nationality Culture Foundation, Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development Fund, Educational-Scientific, Cultural and Communication Committee of UN Maritime-Continental Silk Road Cities Alliance Project, and Oriental International Modern Art Council, with China Daily and U.S. media corporation Time Inc. as two media partners of the event.
