Chinese calligraphy is an intangible cultural heritage under the craftsmanship domain. In its distinctive Chinese form, calligraphy offers an important channel for the appreciation of Chinese traditional culture, arts and education. It is also a source of pride and pleasure for Chinese people as it embodies important aspects of the country’s intellectual and artistic heritage. On top of that, its symbolic value is also related to the famous Four Treasures of the Study of Chinese. It also holds significant aesthetic, historical, artistic, and recreational value.
The preservation of Chinese Calligraphy is strongly needed as its prevalence is diminished by the effects of globalisation and technological development. Just by using alternative typing methods or tools such as audio messages, people can easily communicate Chinese without writing it out. This phenomenon is especially prominent among younger generations. Therefore, by using the facilities offered by modern technology, we could digitally showcase the values of Chinese Calligraphy in more accessible, visible, and sustainable way.
