Artists Connectivity Series:

PRC-USA Season One

中美艺术家连线 第一季

This series is an episodic platform to have topic-based dialogues between Artists across the United States of America, and the People’s Republic of China to share experiences in response to the changing realities. An open space to think tank to plan brighter futures for the relationship between artists in these two countries.

Each session will offer a specific focus topic and be limited to 5 participants, a moderator, and a timekeeper (7 total.) We now open the sessions to artists, producers, presenters, tech specialists, curators, students, and others to participate as "observers".


Observers have the luxury of choosing their experience. Audio, visual, and chat channel communication interactivity options.
- Be inspired by innovative ideas by creative minds from PRC and USA
- Creative networking and collaborative matchmaking opportunities
- An Idea Incubator with direct interaction between Observers & Artists
- Insight into the creative process from inception, and the process of establishing collaborative partnerships
