In the spirit of #TravelTuesday and unique China experiences, we’re highlighting Beijing’s beloved hutong, or traditional alleyways.

This Saturday, July 17, our friends at the Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Center are putting on a unique multimedia event to celebrate the hutong, and you shouldn’t miss out.

Do You Hutong? 看!胡同


One of the most anticipated events of Beijing’s summer is nearly here. Do You Hutong? 看!胡同 is a multimedia cocktail party including original art, live music, photography, and interactive dialogue. The centerpiece of the event is a silent auction of distinctively designed courtyard gates by artists and designers, both local and foreign.

Select artists and designers are applying their talent and individual interpretation to a unique canvas – a clay model of a traditional Chinese courtyard gate – to produce one-of-a-kind collector’s items for guests to purchase and enjoy via silent auction. All proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction and evening directly benefit the Beijing Cultural Heritage Protection Center (CHP).


Advance ticket: RMB150

At door: RMB200
Advance ticket sales at CHP, 46 Fangjia Hutong or the NLGX Design Store, 33 Nanluoguxiang.

Date: Saturday, 17 July, 2010 (7:00 pm – 11.00 pm)
