Because China Arts
12685

Mission Because China’s mission is to foster relationships, facilitate actionable international collaboration, and promote cultural diplomacy in the arts between China and the United States. Working with arts administrators, independent producers/curators, and those employed in various capacities across the cultural sector, our goal is to provide professional development opportunities, leadership skills, and relevant cultural connections for a new breed of global arts and culture workers. Vision As we seek to encourage cultural fluency and mobility among creative professionals in the two vibrant creative capitals of Beijing and Los Angeles, on the ground experience and practical interaction are vital. Through spending meaningful time together learning, more nuanced insight and understanding become possible. Rather than just emphasizing senior level Director to Director organizational cooperation, we wish to provide an avenue of connection for those emerging members of various organizations, who are driving programming and changing the definition of what it means to be an arts and culture professional in the global context. Emphasizing interpersonal connections (the all- important guanxi 关系 in Chinese), we believe real innovation and understanding come about at the person-to-person level. It is our belief that shared time and experience will lead to greater efficacy in future US-China arts & culture related joint initiatives. Calendar For calendar year 2015 Because China Arts is planning four public events and two cultural exchange trips.The four public events will include panels and professional development workshops structured around relevant international arts administration topics. The events will include discussions with artists and administrators that are working between the US and China. In June of 2015, Because China Arts will host an exchange program in Beijing, China, with up to six mid-level arts administrators from Los Angeles. For most this trip will be an introduction to China and the contemporary Chinese arts and culture scene. During their exchange they will visit many cultural organizations, both large and small, and learn about administrative structure and programming priorities in Beijing. They will also have the opportunity to meet with peers, enjoy local food, sightsee and attend cultural events such as concerts and exhibition openings. In October of 2015, Because China Arts will host an exchange program in Los Angeles. Up to six mid-level arts administrators from Beijing will be paired with a peer (based off their affiliated institution or their targeted areas of professional development) whom they will have the opportunity to "shadow" in the work place. Additionally, during their time together, participants will attend an array of workshops, presentations, site visits and cultural events to gain a broader view of the art scene of the city as a whole. Founders Jillian Schultz is an independent curator experienced in exhibition/event production, research, translation, editing, public programming and museum education. She is interested in exploring art as a catalyst for international exchange and cooperation. She recently relocated to Los Angeles after five years in Beijing. Currently, she acts as the Managing Director of Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles and China Country Director for Walking Tree Educational Travel. Brandon Turner is a musician, culture advocate and arts administrator interested in art and performance as means of cultural diplomacy and soft power.
