Our focus in Education will take form in both real and virtual interaction between professional experts and students. We aim to create a space for intelligent minds to speak and listen, sparkling chemistry in thought experiments. The major discussion will involve arts, science, politics and management in different subjects.
The 2 Initiatives related to Education focus recently being conducted are:
Project LIBERAL ARTISTS is dedicated to mix and integrate creative researches and studies across different subjects: cinematography, photography, stage art, architecture, literature, poetry, anthropology, sociology, history as well as politics. The main diffusion method would be on-line platform, through virtual communities and micro-blogs.
Project ILLVMINATIO is about the “enlightening” of heated educative subjects in terms of cross-border studies, how to choose training institution in an unfamiliar environment, how to better be exposed to and understand different culture. This project will take different forms: off-line forums, on-line discussions as well as publications.
Our focus in Medium is to purpose to serve as a cultured agent between different entities, whether personal or collective. We believe that being an agent in promoting effective transmission of information and personnel can be a key step to fulfill the Universalism we strived very hard to reach.
The 2 initiatives related to Medium are:
Project P.O.N.T: Personal, Organizational, National and Transnational. Project P.O.N.T intends to create a continuous series of formal exchange at personal, organizational, national and transnational level.
We target at areas of great importance and concerns with creative understanding: better transculturation, better acculturation and better inculturation in every aspects of cross-culture communication, whether an inter-governmental forum, a catch-up between industrial elites, or an discussion between culture experts.

The concentration on Art is extended to related 3 Initiatives:
A.S.F, the ARTES SINE FINIBVS, is a project aiming at the immersive experience for international artists in transboundary art exchange. As one of our major line of art projects curating in U.S, China, France, Mexico and Cuba , ASF is a hybrid of traditional exhibitions and on-line/off-line promotions. We aim to provide a Universalist ambient for emerging artists from distinctive geographic background to be exposed to mainstream art world.
RENASCENTIA SINICA (Chinese Renaissance) aims to explore, in Chinese context, the power of international spiritual connection, the expansion of cultural interaction and the depth of reviving ancient arts in contemporary ways. With the very essence of inheritance and reformation, this series projects present and re-present Chinese art in various styles and forms, including but not limited to exhibition, performance, and lecture.
Arts Without Borders is devoted to the culture communication and promotion across time, geography and mind. In its original context, “Rinascimiento” refers to the rediscovery and inheritance of lost Styles and Forms, in pursuit of Culture Reborn and Reform. In light of this definition, the purpose of RENASCENTIA SINICA (Chinese Renaissance) is to explore, in contemporary China, the possibility that “Classics” realize a Universal Renaissance after a 100-year low tide.
Project P.A.C.S: Progress, Art, Citizen & Society. PACS intends to promote better understanding between different countries in interpreting social change and civil concerns in an artsy way. The working relationship with United Nations enables us to present these topics on proper stage.

Nanjing Biennale is our past and future. Back in 2008, as curating assistant of the late Korean Curator Won-il Rhee, President Xiaoyun Zhang was engaged in a two-year experience preparing for Nanjing Biennale, during which time she was greatly influenced by his knowledge, professionalism and devotion to art. This experience became the founding momentum of Arts Without Borders.
In honor of Won-il’s spirit now in heaven, we aim to host the next Nanjing Biennale as a curating team, being the most impressive Biennale in China 2018. Guest selection will run the world’s most famous critics and artists.
