Keeping the Arts Alive in Every School

A thriving community of young writers and artists in every school that organizes workshops and readings, gets hands-on editing experience, and contributes to a China-wide initiative to empower students’ creativity.


Collective Initiatives

From weekly in-school workshops to a nation-wide conference for young writers and artists, the InkBeat Student Collectives in each school will work independently and together to build a culture of creativity among young people. Find out how you can get involved.


Workshops and Readings
