Poetry Reading


In the journey of soul-searching poetry reading, we gained more passion and deeper understanding toward poems. At the very end, the poetry reading session drew a satisfactory conclusion to this Artist-in-Residence Program.




In 2016, the University initiated the Artist-in-Residence Program to create an artistic atmosphere on campus and to elevate student's aesthetic taste. We regularly invite top artists from various fields to reside on campus, create artworks and hold workshops with students.

The program may last 5-10 days or 1-2 months. Artists will work with or guide students to create or appreciate artworks through workshop or lectures. Artists will also take into account resources available off campus to contribute towards our development.
