The Daowai district of Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang province asked some art teachers to join a "Painting together to build a civilized city" activity and decorate community walls with inspiring pictures to make Harbin a better city.

The government has been publicizing “socialist values” through ads along sidewalks, on buildings, and on open-air restaurants to portray principles the authorities consider important, such as democracy, civility, harmony, freedom, equality, justice, the law, patriotism, dedication, integrity and friendship.

President Xi Jinping, in following in the steps of Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, and Jiang Zemin’s Three Represents, and the Scientific Outlook on Development of Hu Jingtao, has decided to promote China’s soft cultural power through modern “socialist values”.
