As the Chinese New Year is around the corner, I send my best wishes to all of you from Beijing!
In the unprecedented and unusual 2020, we joined our hands in addressing the pandemic and shared unforgettable moments of mutual support; we rose to challenges and obtained multiple achievements from all corners of the earth through innovative online collaboration; we welcomed win-win outcomes and development by pooling resources as the BFPA was established during the online Beijing Forum for Performing Arts 2020.
We are not alone on the way ahead and the whole world is one family. The past year impressed us with the fact that building a community with a shared future for theatres around the globe is needed more than ever. Here I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all BFPA members and global performing arts institutions for your long-standing support! In 2021, the BFPA is ready to continue working with you to build a platform for extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, to explore more innovative exchange projects and to continuously increase vitality of the performing arts industry.
As we usher in the Year of the Ox, I wish our friends from all over the world and your families health, happiness, peace and prosperity!
Chairperson of the BFPA
