Beijing Postcards Talk: Beijing Arrivals

  • Date: Sunday, December 17th
  • Time: 2:00pm – 4:00pm
  • Cost: 100 RMB, 50 RMB for members, includes a drink

  “Old Beijing”- People often talk about the city as if it once existed in a pure, untouched version. But in reality Beijing has always been a city shaped by waves of migrants.

It is difficult to find a better example of this than “Dashilan”, just southwest of the Qianmen Gate. For hundreds of years this area of Beijing was the ever-simmering melting pot of the capital.

Dashilan was the place where people would first enter Beijing. Through hard labor, personal relations, money, skills or whatever they brought with them, newcomers would find their way into the urban society.

Celebrating a Decade of Exceptional Cultural Experiences

We opened our Hutong courtyard doors ten years back with a simple wish: to create a special place where people could come together, learn from one another, and have a great time. We never imagined we would be where we are today: running programs across China, with an incredible team from across the globe.

十年前我打开了在北新九道湾1号的四合院大,只了一个愿望:大家提供一个可以相聚,学与共享美好光的平台。就这样,胡同可以从那个时候一直走到了今天。现在,我们拥有这来自世界各地的团队,并在全中国各个地方都有不同的活动, For our ten-year anniversary, we’ll be celebrating each month of 2017.  一眨眼,十年去了,在迎接2017年的到来的同,我想要和大家一起个难得的庆典
