Made in China, Hangzhou China

Returning from their trip in Hanghzou, Eastern China, Coventry University staff and students are to exhibit the work produced during the ZUMC/CSAD experience exchange.

Cultures merged, as 48 students from all over the world got together to produce professional journalism work, created in both English and Mandarin.

John Mair, Senior Lecturer in Broadcast Journalism at Coventry and one of the organisers for trip, said:

“The work crossed cultures and continents. Much of it is very impressive. Come and see for yourselves.”

The exhibition “Made in Hangzhou, Shown in Coventry” is open for a private view on Thursday 29 April 2010 at 6.00pm in the Lanchester Gallery (Graham Sutherland Building, Coventry University).

Entry is free and open to all.
