Chinese Arts Centre
With the second largest Chinese community in the UK, Manchester’s link with Chinese culture is strong.
The Chinese Arts Centre reflects Manchester's cultural bond with China via changing contemporary arts exhibitions, residencies and workshops.
Beyond being just a gallery, the Centre aims to support Chinese artists and allow their work to flourish. The unique 'Breathe' residency project space provides resident artists with a living area, studio and exhibition space. An education programme, advocacy and consultancy are among the other ways the Centre supports Chinese arts.
A tea house and shop offer additional reasons to call in at this hive of activity in the Northern Quarter area of the city centre.
