Jackie Chan Speaks to NIST Students

www.nist.ac.th, December 2009


students heard an inspiring talk by Jackie Chan followed by a dialogue session with him. Jackie Chan’s visit to NIST was part of the third ASEAN event series "Bridges - Dialogues towards a Culture of Peace”.

A well-known actor, philanthropist, and Goodwill Ambassador Jackie Chan talked to Year 12 and Year 13 students, as well as drama and art students from the lower secondary school on the topic “Art and Culture as a Pathway towards Peace.”

Linking his work to peace building, he shared with students how, in each of his recent movies, he has tried to give hidden messages to teach values to his audience, especially the young. Students enjoyed the very frank talk with Chan and were able to ask him questions on both personal and global issues.
