2021年的中国新年是2月12日星期五,即农历牛年的开始。和传统一样,庆祝活动将在2月11日至17日举行。

As part of the Beyond Skin Blueprint PeaceIV programme the Newry, Mourne & Down Chinese New Year Festival is scheduled to take place 11th – 17th February in virtual & natural shared spaces. Blueprint is a comprehensive ethnic minority cultural diversity programme across the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council area, supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
作为“肤色之上和平蓝图”项目的一部分,纽里,莫恩及唐郡理事会举办的中国新年节庆将于2月11日至17日在线上和线下共享空间举行。蓝图是一个全面的少数民族文化多样性方案,覆盖纽里、莫恩和唐郡理事会地区,由欧盟特别方案机构(SEUPB)管理的第四和平方案提供支持。

The festival will be a sensory experience of activities through music, movement, arts, food and the natural world celebrating Chinese culture and the human spirit of the strength in togetherness as we all navigate through these challenging times. Through creative collaborations with our local & global neighbours the festival will also enable moments of reflection for those loved ones we have lost whilst also nurturing our own mental health and wellbeing. Activities will also carry a theme related to one or more of the sustainable development goals.
这个节庆将通过音乐、运动、艺术、食物和自然世界的感官体验来庆祝中国文化,颂扬指引着人类共渡难关的团结力量。通过与当地及全球友邻们的创造性合作,该节庆还将寄托对已逝亲人的思念,同时培养、呵护我们的心理健康和幸福。活动还将涉及与一项或多项可持续发展目标有关的主题。

Activities will be participatory led by individuals & groups in the Newry, Mourne and Down area complimenting creative collaboration productions with artists in Northern Ireland, England, China & Singapore. Some activities will also be included in the Chinese New Year Festival 14th February managed by Chinese Welfare Association as we share the theme ‘Strong As An Ox”
活动将由纽里、莫恩和唐郡地区的个人和团体领导,并与北爱尔兰、英格兰、中国和新加坡的艺术家进行创意合作。正因有着“强壮如牛”的共同主题,在2月14日春节期间,一些由华人福利会主办的活动也将包含其中。
