WELCOME TO THE MERIDIAN SOCIETY

The Meridian Society promotes Chinese culture with the aim of fostering better understanding between people of Chinese origin and those from other ethnic backgrounds, both in the UK and worldwide.

子午社致力于传播与推广中国文化,并以此来促进华人和来自英国及世界其它地区不同肤色和人种之间的相互理解与沟通

Mission Statement

In bringing together people of diverse cultural backgrounds, we hope to encourage deeper appreciation of the values and traditions of each and to demonstrate Confucius’ tenet that we can all strive for common goals while retaining our individual characteristics. In a world that is increasingly troubled by differences in beliefs and customs, we aim to seek similarities of ideals and aspirations, so that the meridian we create will not be a dividing line between East and West, but an interface between civilisations of the world.

当今世界,文化和信仰千差万别,种族隔阂和纠纷时有发生。“子午社”旨在通过对比中华文明与世界其他文明,寻求共识,从而加深各个不同价值观和传统之间的相互理解,推广儒家“和而不同”的理念。同时,我们致力于将这些理念实践于当今社会,从而使“子午”不再是东西方世界的分界线,而是世界各民族的交汇点

Events & Activities

We run a lively and diverse programme of events and activities to appeal to audiences of all ages, tastes and backgrounds, including people of Chinese origin who wish to learn more about their own cultural heritage, as well as members of the general public wishing to gain a deeper insight into China’s ancient civilisation and contemporary society. Regular activities include:

  • talks on various aspects of Chinese culture
  • educational courses and arts workshops
  • film screenings, exhibitions and cultural performances
  • heritage projects
  • dinner-debates
  • social get-togethers at Chinese New Year and other Chinese festivals
  • public displays and outdoor spectacles
