The Nut

Creating a Networking Platform

The Nut is a multicultural arts and events space in Shanghai, China, that supports the local arts and design community. Started in 2009, The Nut provided a platform for all things arts and design, bringing a diverse array of artistic content to the people of the city. Unique, interdisciplinary events—exhibitions, live sets, lectures, workshops, performances, screenings—were held in the space regularly.


The Nut thus established itself as a melting pot for people from all walks of life to connect with one another and share their passions, creating dialogue across cultural boundaries.
