 Second World Cultural Capitals Tianfu Symposium
Proposal for Museums "Hand in Hand"
The essence of communications and dialogues among cities is the exchange and reference of cultures. Museums, as the crystallisation of culture, play an important role in preserving a city's cultural heritage.
To this end, we hereby propose that:
With the spirit of cultural exchange, global collaboration, sharing and openness, we should strengthen exchanges and cooperation with museums from all over the world, and enhance the influence of culture in global cities. We should also build a community of shared cultural destiny, and promote the global cultural prosperity, to achieve the goal of "enhancing our own strength, learning from each other, and seeking common development".
