The Qiaozi Artists Commune located in Huairou in the northern suburbs of Beijing. The area is rural and an hours drive from central Beijing. With Danshanzi's 798 as the central hub of Beijing's contemporary art community there are a series of satellite centers that have developed since 1995 when Yuanmingyuan (Old Summer Palace) was closed and artists moved to affordable locations such as Songzhuang, Shanguan, Caochangdi and more recently Qiaozi.

What is unique about Qiaozi is the commune cluster in a rural setting with custom built high quality studios and homes. The architecture is contemporary and the studios generous and comprehensive with capacity for major works and audio visual presentations.Artists have international exchanges that include 4A Gallery in Sydney that brings exchange artists from Australia.

The artists visited included Zeng Li Theater Studio, Shen Shaomin and Qu Yan's Art Studios. Zengli has a substantial studio and has worked with Zhang Yimou,a famous film director that includes the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening performance

It will be about one hour' drive from Beijing. Meet at the China Culture Center to board the coach.
