 ABOUT THE EVENT:  Dominic Johnson-Hill is engaged on an epic adventure, hosting a Xinhua television program which explains the traditional Chinese 24 solar terms. About 3000 years ago the Chinese mapped the movements of the sun to create the 24 solar terms which guide farming activities and reflect shifts in climate, agricultural production and other aspects of rural life. Dominic is visiting 24 sites around China -- from the far north to the mountains of Guangxi to the deserts of the Northwest -- exploring how these terms remain ingrained in Chinese culture and history. He’ll share stories and pictures showing how the 24 solar terms are celebrated in today’s China.
