On August 19, 2019, during a discussion at the Dunhuang Academy, the General Secretary Xi pointed out that "only a self-confident civilization can tolerate, learn from and absorb different civilizations while maintaining its national characteristics". The brilliance of Dunhuang civilization is a model of continuous integration and penetration of Chinese civilization through thousands of years of history. The spirit of the Silk Road that "only through equality and mutual benefit, tolerance and mutual learning, and win-win cooperation under the influence of solidarity" formed on the basis of Dunhuang culture is still of profound practical significance today Globalization is affecting the economy, politics, culture, art and other aspects of the world. In the current human anxiety about internationalization and fear of modernization, what is the state of Dunhuang culture with the most national cultural characteristics in Chinese culture? And how should Dunhuang art face the challenges and integrate with modern digital technologies in the context of globalization? The solution to these problems cannot only depend on cultural relics conservation workers, but also needs to promote and disseminate protection methods and concepts, enhance public awareness and jointly safeguard the future of Dunhuang world cultural heritage and intangible cultural heritage.
