Arts in the Cloud
Although the life at home restricts our bodies, it can't restrain our hearts. All kinds of “cloud trips” enable us to “walk” into galleries, art museums and concert halls, breaking though the constraints one after another. They even make the meetings which are difficult to have offline unexpectedly come true based on a different form in this special period.
After the epidemic, we will still run to the offline sites, but this does not prevent us from having more dimensions of enjoying arts and appreciating life. After we have a series of online experiences during this time, the seeds of this "cloud life" have actually been planted. Therefore, UAC is about to enter the “cloud” era of arts with all of you, opening the normalization mode of online sharing and endowing arts more possibilities! Breaking through the limitation of space, many artists around the world will meet you in the cloud.
“Arts in the Cloud” is the online live broadcast section of UAC, which will cover all-inclusive arts knowledge in the form of "Artists’Sharing + Interaction". Relying on live broadcast platforms such as BiliBili and Zoom as the main channels, each episode of the section is about 60-90 minutes in length, including a wide range of topics, such as literature, fine arts, music, design, drama and other categories. Artists who may be hard to meet offline will be invited “in the cloud” to create a collision of ideas with you and look into the all-sided future of arts and life from the elementary to the profound.
