Xiaozhou: arts market

An arts event during the National Holidays. This will run every third Saturday of the month. Organised by the Jiazong (community work organisation), this is a new initiative that takes the place of the arts festival. It is interesting to see that the arts festival which to a certain extent was targetted at the arts community and interested city residents has been replaced by a more community based event. However, this event is limited to the Litang (hall) area and does not reach the same kind of spatial reach within the village.
