Once again, the “Association of Chinese students in Paderborn”, headed by Fu Shihao, with local support organized a respectable spring festival. The festival took place at the Kulturwerkstatt, Bahnhofstrasse in Paderborn and was sold out. Chinese and German students led through a diverse program in Chinese and German. Students and guests presented their almost professionally trained voices on stage. Other students showed their skills playing traditional Chinese instruments and a magician amazed people with his tricks. Another highlight were the Shaolin-Kongfu fighters and their breathtaking martial arts from Bielefeld. – The Paderborn Spring Festival has been contributing to ease homesickness for years, which quite a few students so far from home experience during the time of this culturally important festival. Traditionally, the turn of the year according to the Chinese calendar is the most important family celebration and is attended by most family members from near and far. Members of Paderborn University benefited from this because the program offered them an insight into a little known highly interesting culture.
