Chinese Arts Now
Our vision is for CAN to produce and present to the public, work that explores Chinese themes, stories and art forms, and work that blends Chinese and other contemporary art forms. We aim to be the UK’s leading organisation showcasing this work, to educate, and to foster cultural understanding and appreciation of the UK’s diversity to audiences across the country.
Our mission is to present to the public, in greater London and on tour, innovative and contemporary performing arts exploring Chinese themes, stories and art forms and work that blends Chinese and other contemporary art forms. By developing and presenting this work, we aim to raise public understanding and appreciation of Chinese and other perspectives and art forms. The work we programme and produce focuses on performing arts including music, theatre, live art and dance.
CAN believes in diversity on and off-stage. CAN is committed to supporting professionals with Chinese cultural heritage to broaden skills and access to opportunities.
