Cultural performances have become a popular and effective way to promote constructing a harmonious society in Qingdao's Shinan district, local media outlets reported.
The district's cultural center has organized bands to perform original songs on street corners, parks and commercial plazas to raise the public's awareness about building a harmonious society.
"We also aim to create a good image of Shinan district through music," said Dong Ting, the cultural center's curator.
The cultural center also created a xiaopin (Chinese skit) based on community governance and people's daily lives, such as the installation of elevators in old residential areas, which generated a positive response from the locals.
Shinan district is collecting more local stories and plans to spread the good spirit through kuaiban, a traditional Chinese talk show, Jiaodong Dagu, which is a type of ballad singing and drum performance popular in the Jiaodong Peninsula area, and other art forms.
