Yaji: East West Cultural Gatherings

Yaji is an initiative that Fox Intercultural Consulting spearheaded in the fall of 2013. Inspired by the historic ‘elegant gatherings’ (雅集) of the Song Dynasty, where artists, poets, sages and scholars would come together to drink tea and contemplate art and life—Yaji is a modern day salon about the new waves of Chinese and Asian contemporary art and culture as they intersect with New England life.

Yaji is a purposeful coming together. It aims to locate and nurture a creative community of local artists, writers and thinkers in the New England region whose work straddles East and West. We also invite Asia’s leading new voices to travel into the New England region to share their projects and inspire new connections. Yaji programs are accessible to the public and offer a forum for in-depth conversation and collaboration. We showcase contemporary forms in fields as diverse as literature, visual arts, film, dance and music. Yaji was co-founded by Suzanne Fox, Mei Selvage and Clare Morin.
