About Us

The Asian Journeys Calligraphy Club (AJCC) was officially launched on 19 January 2019.  AJCC was birthed out of a passion to make Chinese culture and the foremost Chinese art form - Calligraphy (书法) - accessible to the young and the English-speaking world.

Lawrence Ko (Founder-Director, Asian Journeys Ltd) and Daniel Chen (Advisor) shared the vision with a group of friends and associates who had keen interest in Chinese arts and culture. They went on to form the AJCC - a calligraphy club 'with a difference'.

 

They also appointed Lai Wan Chung - a Singaporean calligrapher who represents the younger and bilingual generation - as the inaugural Club President.

The mission and charter of AJCC is threefold:

 

1. Making Chinese calligraphy and culture accessible to all.

2. Using innovative coaching methods to increase the joy and success of your calligraphic journey.

3. Cultivating character and offering an antidote to the stresses of modern living.
