See what our ACYD 2014 delegates have to say about Australia-China relations. This collection of brilliant works are inspired by the cross-culture interactions during the dialogue last November in Beijing and is brought to you by our delegates from a diverse range of professions. They will share their understandings in Australia-China relations from their own field of expertise.

"We often look up at the starry night sky, counting the countless, never-ending stars, dreaming about the sky's stories... for us, the stars are a kind of distant future, the most beautiful dream, a kind of hope." -- Song Xi, Artist
In Song Xi's moving image work, Starry Sky, the Beijing artist plucks each star, one by one, from the night's sky until only darkness remains. This melancholic work was exhibited as part of the Arts & Creative Industries panel session at the 2014 Australia-China Youth Dialogue, chaired by CREATIVE ASIA's Amanda Barry over the weekend. A panel of industry experts discussed entrepreneurship in China's contemporary arts - video to come for those who missed it.

The ACYD is delighted to announce the delegates for the 2014 Dialogue. Congratulations and see you in Beijing soon. We would like to thank everyone who applied for the ACYD. This year’s applicants were of an extremely high calibre and we strongly encourage those who were unsuccessful to apply again in 2015 when the ACYD returns to Australia.
The Australia-China Youth Dialogue is delighted to announce today the appointment of delegates to participate in the 2014 ACYD to be held in Beijing, China from 21-24 November. From the nearly 250 applications, 30 delegates have been selected to participate in the Dialogue.
Short listing delegates proved a difficult task for the selection committee as the overall candidate standard was high.
As a result, the 2014 ACYD delegates will showcase a rich variety of industries, backgrounds and expertise. Founder and Chairman Henry Makeham said 'The calibre of the delegates participating in ACYD is extremely high. I am proud to say we have a very diverse group who are united in their passion for advancing the Australia-China relationship'.
The chosen delegates will participate in an intensive four day program with experts discussing issues pertinent to the Australia-China relationship including creative industries, trade and investment, entrepreneurship, food security and climate change. The program includes a special welcome reception hosted by the Australian Ambassador to China, HE Ms Frances Adamson and other meetings with senior experts from academia, government and business.
One of the 2014 ACYD delegates Jean Dong, a Beijing born, Melbourne based entrepreneur, said 'I am very excited to be part of this program. I am looking forward to hearing from prestigious speakers, exchanging ideas with an eclectic cohort of young Australians and Chinese and applying the insights gained at ACYD to my every-day dealings in my current role.'
'With this year’s ACYD to be held in Beijing, it also provides us a great opportunity to have first-hand experience of the rapid growth of China. I believe the four-day thought provoking journey will re-affirm our commitment to developing a more positive and engaging Australia-China bilateral relationship.'
This year's delegates will join another one hundred and twenty outstanding ACYD delegate alumni who have, or are moving into, positions of influence and leadership within the Australia-China relationship.
Congratulations to the appointed delegates. We wish them a productive and valuable Dialogue. Full biographies of the selected delegates can be viewed at www.acyd.org.au
