The founding ceremony of the Ministry of Education's new Jinju Opera Art and Culture Inheritance Base was held at Shanxi University (SXU) in the city of Taiyuan, capital of North China's Shanxi province, on June 30.

Representatives of the Shanxi Vocational College of Art, the Shanxi Opera Research Institute and officials from Shanxi University's administrative departments and the School of Music attended the ceremony.

SXU President Huang Guitian gave a speech discussing the advantages and efforts of Shanxi University in passing down and promoting cultural heritage including Jinju Opera in recent years.

He said that as the only inheritance base for Jinju Opera in the country, the university would explore the long-term working mechanisms for traditional cultural inheritance and research, so as to contribute to the development of Shanxi's culture.

Initiated by the Ministry of Education in 2018 to further the integration of traditional Chinese culture into college education, the traditional Chinese culture inheritance base program is an important initiative.

It focuses on supporting colleges and universities in developing cultural promotion bases for folk music, folk fine art, folk dance, drama, opera, traditional handicraft and ethnic sports. The program plans to build about 100 traditional Chinese culture inheritance bases nationwide by the end of 2020.
