Summer of China in Boston

Twenty-one Boston-area civic, cultural, and educational organizations announced last week they are joining together to celebrate Boston China Summer. From June through October 2008, participating organizations will sponsor a wide array of activities and events that highlight Chinese and Chinese-American art and culture in the greater Boston area. As all eyes focus on the Beijing Olympics, Boston China Summer events showcase Chinese culture that is available right in this area. Boston China Summer activities offer something for all ages and interests. Events on China include several exhibits: film and television series; lectures; music, dance and martial arts performances; and lots of workshops and hands-on activities for the whole family. More information about specific events can be found at
The participating Boston China Summer organizations have come together to enhance awareness of the depth and breadth of Chinese art and cultural activities found right here at home. With China ever more present in our lives, it is the perfect time for everyone to understand more about this ancient and modern country.
Boston China Summer is also celebrating the sister city relationship between Boston and its Chinese sister city, Hangzhou.
Boston China Summer is coordinated by Boston Children’s Museum, with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
