Returning to the discussion of the relationship between art and the contemporary city, the idea of ‘art as a method of urban co-creation has long been a universal idea of urban development, the dialogue on cross-cultural communication is the significant part of it. Coincide with the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations establishment between the Netherlands and China at the ambassadorial level. We invite guests to share and respond to relevant urban issues with their own artistic and creative practices, exchange ideas and stimulate imagination and, of course, and particularly important, build and promote ongoing collaboration and friendship

among the community of creators. Topics covered are:

Aesthetic practices and identity self-fashioning

Public images and urban renewal

Art and urban memory

Creative exploration of co-creation of life
