In this powerful talk and performance, Kelvin shares why he is focused on ensuring that young people can continue to connect with their cultural heritage and play an important role in keeping ancient cultural practices, like Dragon and Lion Dancing, alive.

Kelvin Tran is the co-founder of Qing Fong Dragon & Lion Dance Team, a non-for-profit community organisation whose mission is to ensure that the art form of lion dancing continues to live on in Sydney. By combining Chinese lion dancing with the craft of showmanship, the team performs amazing acrobatic performances to show off the art to audiences across Sydney.
