The creative initiative "Canal Chic: Reviving China's Heritage" was launched at the China Grand Canal Museum in Yangzhou, East China's Jiangsu province on Saturday, calling for entries of creative visual works from around the world.

2024 marks the 10th anniversary of China's successful bid to inscribe the Grand Canal as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This project aims to explore the cultural heritage and spiritual essence of the Grand Canal, revitalizing more cultural relics and heritage.

Artists, designers, art lovers and cultural institutions globally, including museums, art galleries and universities, are all welcomed to participate. Through online submissions and offline on-site "source exploration" activities, participants are encouraged to use their artistic skills to interpret cultural relics, creating visual works such as scrolls, posters, animated illustrations and micro-videos.

The works should utilize cultural relics associated with the Grand Canal as creative materials, sourced from museums and cultural heritage sites in the eight provincial areas along the Grand Canal: Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shandong, Henan, Anhui, Jiangsu and Zhejiang.

The initiative is supported by the network communication bureau of the Cyberspace Administration of China, hosted by China Daily Website and sponsored by China Internet Development Foundation.
