Operating out of a small studio in the heart of old Beijing, its intimate atmosphere and more personable, informal approach to exchange has made it a popular alternative spot for the Beijing media arts community. SHAN invites local and international artists of various genres to share their wealth of creative experience and concepts. The studio hosts artists talks, hands-on workshops, an international residency program and special courses in media arts for local youth.
