Asia Research Network for Arts and Media (ARNAM)

ARNAM is an interdisciplinary body for the teaching, learning and research of Asia and its global diaspora, formed by CFCCA, The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and The University of Salford. The network provides an identity for the high quality trans-cultural work undertaken between the founding organisations with national and international partners.

Online Research Forum

Our online research forum is free to join and welcomes artists, curators, academics, creatives or anyone interested in connecting with or knowing more about Chinese contemporary art and visual culture. It is an online platform with a growing collection of posts from details of projects to critical writing on what is happening in, and in relation to China today, socially, politically and culturally.

We invite partners and members to share information. If you would like to contribute content, please emailĀ
