Arts in the Cloud

"Arts in the Cloud" is an online live streaming activity organised by UAC, which will cover all-inclusive arts knowledge in the form of "Artists' Sharing + Interaction". Relying on live streaming platforms such as BiliBili and Zoom as the main channels, each episode 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.

To bring students closer to culture and art
