On July 8, the Ming Dynasty Culture Forum 2023 opened at The Ming Tombs Tourist 
Center, co-hosted by Beijing Municipal Cultural Heritage Bureau, Beijing 
Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, Beijing Municipal Radio and Television 
Bureau, the CPC Changping District Committee and Changping District People's 
Government of Beijing Municipality.

Themed "Splendid Ming Dynasty, Glorious Culture", the Ming Dynasty Culture 
Forum 2023 features one main forum, five themed forums, one international 
symposium, three culture heritage exhibitions and 10 cultural events that will 
continue throughout the year. The goal is to further leverage Changping 
District's advantage as the sole intersection of the three "culture belts" of 
Beijing, dive into and carry forward the virtues of Ming Dynasty culture, push 
for creative transformation and innovative development of fine traditional 
Chinese culture in Changping District and help it build a world-famous Ming 
Dynasty culture research, exchange and experience center, according to the 
Publicity Department of Changping District.

The Ming Dynasty (1368 AD - 1644 AD) had its special glamour in Chinese 
history. During the period, a wealth of results were achieved in economy, 
culture, art, science and technology and other fields, making outstanding 
contributions to the world's cultural progress. The Ming Dynasty Culture Forum 
aims to dive into and carry forward the virtues of Ming Dynasty culture, 
present its distinctive aspects through historical and cultural lens and add 
new elements to modern life.

The Ming Dynasty Culture Forum 2023 brings together about 60 cultural 
celebrities, well-known scholars and influencers to share their insights and 
chart the course for the inheritance and high-quality development of Ming 
Dynasty culture in the new era.

Combining both academic and non-academic components, the Ming Dynasty Culture 
Forum 2023 targets specialists and the general public alike and highlights 
popular and modern elements. The forum will also hold a series of activities 
such as the Traditional Chinese Medicine Culture and Tourism Festival and the 
"Bai Zi Yi" (100-family clothes for a baby's 100-day celebration) flash mob. 
Digital technology will be employed to create immersive experiences to sell 
cultural and creative products. All this is designed to help Changping District 
make Ming Dynasty culture one of its cultural signatures, attract more tourists 
and increase its visibility and influence.

The Ming Dynasty Culture Forum will continue to fully perform its functions for 
pooling resources, driving development, pioneering innovation, facilitating 
communication and exchange and providing service and support. It will work to 
engage more people, interpret and showcase Ming Dynasty culture in more diverse 
forms, help improve regional economic and cultural quality and efficiency and 
make Ming Dynasty culture a great namecard of Changping District.
