关于2014新加坡潮州节

为庆祝新加坡潮州八邑会馆成立85周年,会馆举办“潮州人,家己人”潮州节,旨在提升社区对会馆的认识和对潮州文化的了解。

“潮州人,家己人”是潮州话,意为“潮州人一家亲”。标志是以一种独特的潮州小吃 - 饭粿,为设计主题。八个饭粿紧紧相联,形成一个团圆,象征和谐、社区、工会和家庭关系。

潮州节将是一场丰富多彩的历史与文化交流。会馆希望大众能透过富启发性的展品一窥潮州人的日常作息,也同时了解新加坡人中华文化的重要层面。”

ABOUT TEOCHEW FESTIVAL 2014

The Teochew Festival is organised in conjunction with the Teochew Poit Ip Huay Kuan’s grand 85th anniversary celebrations in Singapore.

The tagline for this festival broadly translates as ‘We are One Teochew Family’ and the logo is an artistic rendition of a distinctive Teochew snack – the ‘png kueh’ or rice cake. Eight ‘png kueh’ are strategically interlinked in a circle to symbolise harmony, community, union and family ties.

The Teochew Festival would be the first time that the Huay Kuan has organised a festival showcasing Teochew culture on such a large scale. The Huay Kuan hopes to give the public a vivid representation of Teochews through enlightening glimpses into their daily lives, and to a larger extent also highlight an important aspect of Singaporean Chinese culture.
