Twelve Craftsmen Were Awarded “Dongcheng Artisan”

  On the afternoon of December 18, the first 12 "Dongcheng Artisans" were announced at Chongwen Workers Cultural Palace in Dongcheng District, and 10 newly created "artisan songs" were released.

  "Dongcheng Artisan" Selection Activity Values "Craftsmanship"

  According to someone in charge of Dongcheng Federation of Trade Unions, the first "Dongcheng Artisan" selection activity adopted the evaluation methods of direct nomination and grassroots recommendation. Some were directly nominated from industry leaders in Dongcheng District in the past three years, and others were selected from the grassroots level. After several rounds of recommendations, expert review, and public announcements, twelve "Dongcheng artisans" were finally selected.

  It is known that these 12 "Dongcheng artisans" are all workers engaged in technical operations and frontline service from the traditional handicraft industry, catering industry and the industries related to the inheritance of intangible cultural heritage. Some have already established innovative studios named after themselves; some are granted with a number of "master" titles; and some are inheritors of intangible cultural heritage. For example, Zhang Tiecheng, a master of arts and crafts, has worked in jade carving for 28 years; Zhong Liansheng is an inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage cloisonne technique; and Liu Qingchi is an excellent hairdresser who insists on inheriting traditional haircutting methods.

  Ten "Artisan Songs" Extol Dongcheng Artisans

  On the same day, Dongcheng Federation of Trade Unions also released 10 newly created "artisan songs". It is known that these 10 "artisan songs" with different themes and styles are jointly created by Dongcheng Federation of Trade Unions and Dongcheng Music Association. These songs aim at showcasing the noble and enlightening personalities of "Dongcheng artisans", and promoting the social tradition of working with honor and dedication in work.

  Many of the creators of these songs are national level songwriters. These songs will be used as the designated songs at the 10th "Flowers of May" Public Singing event in our district, and will also be sung in the whole district to extol the stories of "Dongcheng artisans".

  As reported, Dongcheng Federation of Trade Unions will continue to carry out a series of publicity activities to spread the spirit of model workers and artisans and the spirit of dedicate working. From late December, the modern drama "The Sky of Artisans" will be on the stage. The drama centers on model workers and artisans in Dongcheng District, and will be played in 10 performances. The noble and enlightened personalities of "Dongcheng artisans" will be given full play through activities such as lectures, informal discussions, "meet model artisans around" activity, technical skill competition, on-the-job training and apprenticing to famous artisans.
