The Confucius Institute offers regular Chinese cultural events that are usually free and open to the public. The event happening tomorrow night is unique in that one of MIM’s own current students, Russell Kucinski, organized the event and secured the guest presenter, Ma Wei Hua, to show his calligraphy. Please attend to appreciate beautiful Chinese calligraphy and to support MIM’s own! Good job, Russell! (All information below is directly from the Confucius Institute flyer.)
