It not only builds a good platform to these graduates but also gives them confidence to keep artistic creation. Internet exhibition provides graduates with more opportunities to show and display, especially to the arts institutions which cannot take part in exhibitions because of distance, and then promotes communication and understanding of sculpture institutions all over the world. Graduates Sculpture Workshop gives graduates a chance to go deep into the traditional carving arts, train of the manipulative ability, learn folk carving skills and communicate with craftsmen. They also bring fresh creation and viewpoint to craftsmen. Sculpture Education Seminar aims to promote teaching exchange of arts institutions. Sino-foreign College Students Recruitment Promotion Conference and Painting and Designing Talents Job Fair offer further education and job opportunities to graduates.
Owing to the limited exhibition funds, the exhibitions are still within domestic institutions from 2006 to 2009, while we never abandon our dreams to hold an international exhibition. The exhibition in 2010 is the first step for us to move toward internationalization. We hope arts institutions both home and abroad can support such public benefit activities.
