Built in 1985, Beijing Concert Hall (Chinese name: 北京音乐厅) was China’s first ever professional concert hall with high quality sound facilities. The performance space on the first ground seating over 1,000, while art exhibitions are mounted on the upper levels. most concert held here include the instrumental & vocal music, Western and Chinese. In concert hall, a lower platform reduces the space between performer and audience. A 15-panel reflective board hung above the stage in three groups sends sound waves from below to every corner of the hall, maximizing the acoustic effect.
The China Film Archive is a treasure-house of Chinese Film history. It offers both screenings and a reference library of films, at a price. China Film Archive (CFA), founded in 1958, has a history of over 50 years. Since its founding, CFA has been collecting film art archive materials. Collected archives are divided into two catalogues, one including film materials and the other written materials (such as scenarios, scripts, film synopses etc.), stills and film posters. The most precious materials in CFA’s collection are documentaries of important historical events, as well as historical photographs of the early times of the People’s Republic of China. CFA also preserves copies of many important films produced in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Screenings of Polish films will be held there.
43 Baojia Street, Xicheng, Beijing The concert hall of the Central Conservatory of Music is within the institution’s campus, located in the South-West part of central Beijing. It is known to be, among others, the historical residence of Prince Chun, and the birthplace of Emperor Kuang-hsu from the Qing dynasty. Currently, the historic building of the Prince’s residence is the entrance of the proper concert hall, one of the popular places for musical and cultural events.

The Circles of Art Foundation was founded in 2010 as a means to create a space where art meets science. The permeating “circles of art” enable expressing various achievements in the arts, connecting music, theatre, film, visual arts and new media, as well as other interdisciplinary works. In the years 2010-2016, we organized 7 editions of the Festival of European Art Academies and Art “Circles of Art”, alongside which were 7 editions of the film festival “Wakacyjne Kadry” (Summer Frames) in Circles of Art. The festival hosted masters and students from 36 faculties of arts, artists from 19 countries of the world.
These circles continue to expand to different places in Poland and abroad, this time to Beijing.
