From China Daily:

Art dealers, architects and designers who helped create the freewheeling Dashanzi Art District, where artists can meet the masses, are planning to stage a festival to celebrate Beijing’s emergence as a global cultural centre…

The culture-fest, which runs through May 22, will also showcase digital media artworks and new-millennium minstrels “who will stroll around the art district telling their stories in different languages,” she said…

During the festival, Mars and Vendel’s Dynamic City Foundation ( will display a futuristic Chinese cosmopolis featuring cool, cloud-piercing cylinders that will serve as living spaces, all interconnected with a web of elevated walkways and subterranean trains.
