Events and Activities

Focused on art, culture, architecture, history, books and performance, RASBJ organises talks, panel discussions, films and book presentations — and unique day trips. From spending the night in a Buddhist monastery to visiting the last artisan who makes calligraphy brushes by hand, our Beijing excursions are often one-of-a-kind.
