For some years now, the Netherlands has invested in strengthening cultural relations with China. SICA aligns ambitions and possibilities of programmes that combine several cultural disciplines.
In 2012, SICA will develop the following activities:
- SICA will intensify the cooperation with OCT (Chinese real estate developments) on projects and activities in the field of Dutch-Chinese cultural exchange.
- SICA is developing the digital platform Cultural Exchange China – the Netherlands, which went online in the spring of 2011.
These activities build on expertise and experiences of the Netherlands China Arts Foundation and the Dutch Culture Centre, the temporary cultural exchange venue in Shanghai around the World Expo 2010, which were both produced by SICA.
On 14 October 2010, the Netherlands China Arts Foundation and SICA organised an expert meeting about cultural exchange with China for all organisations who have been involved in the activities of the Netherlands China Arts Foundation, including the Dutch Culture Centre in Shanghai.
