Requirements for CI’s Lunchtime Cultural Activities

The workshops will be delivered by Confucius Institute’s tutors. There is no cost attached, but departments will have to supply some of their own materials to enable activities. E.g.: Audio-visual equipment for MS Powerpoint presentations;  newspapers to cover the desk space for the ink blow painting, paper plates for the mixing of paints etc.
