A cultural service center opened at Anzhen Subdistrict of Chaoyang District in Beijing on July 31, 2018. Functioning as a cultural center, 24-hour library, gallery, history museum, intangible cultural heritage exhibition center and art training center, it will provide public cultural services to surrounding residents.

Currently, Anzhen Subdistrict has more than 10 fine art teams of dance, chorus, weaving, poetry and calligraphy, ballroom dancing, opera, etc. Due to the limited space, the former cultural service center could not meet the diverse cultural demands of community residents. In 2017, the subdistrict’s office decided to vacate its three-story building with an area of 2,000 square meters at Anhuali Community to build a comprehensive cultural service center for residents.

The center will be managed and operated by Beijing Cultural Development Foundation, which accumulates a wide range of artist resources to provide professional counseling to culture lovers at communities and meet their artistic pursuit.

“All lecture, art experience and rehearsal activities will be free of charge at the center except the public welfare professional courses, which are charged lower than the market price. The center will open for free for at least 84 hours per week,” an official introduced.

The opening time will also be extended to 10:00 at night, allowing more residents to enjoy interesting public cultural services on their doorstep.
