In just nine days, the multi-cultural team from China, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico and the Netherlands investigated the heritage village in Xixinan, interviewed local villagers, learned about village customs and culture and created art pieces reflecting rural life. The process of creating public art provided a platform for interacting with the villagers, providing an opportunity for cultural exchange.
