Why are we doing this
Lotus Lee foundation cherishes cultural exchange based on theatre, art and technology. We aim to bridge the gap between Chinese and American theatre, thus providing a platform for emerging artists and young professionals in the theater to have their voice heard.
We have successfully launched similar programs such as New Work Initiative to boost the exposure and cultural communication of international playwrights. By hosting Lotus Lee Travel Fellowship, we look forward to step further on nurturing the cultural exchange from the perspectives of theatre industry research and ideas sharing.
Every opinion should be heard and valued in the era of globalization. We are long for your own insights and voices on the future of the theatre industry and its related fields — in the language of data or theoretical research.
