Beijing 798 Arts District Demonstrates the Power of Cultural and Creative Industry

Lihui Wu, Vancouver Island University, Canada.

Summary

The success of the 798 Arts District stems from the grassroots movement initiated by the artists and non-profit institutes. They challenged the authorities, who intended to carry out the demolition of the 798 Arts District, to preserve the cultural heritage of that area and shift power to the people. The 798 Arts District can serve as a model of sustainability for other arts districts or redevelopment projects in urban areas.
