Shenzhen's Second Annual Craft Beer Fest! 干杯！
On November 11th, Shenzhen’s second annual craft beer festival came to my neighborhood! While I am not the biggest beer drinker (more of a wine / cocktail / cider kind of gal), the fest was loads of fun.
The festival took place in Shenzhen’s SoFun Land, a brand new contemporary art terminal that decided to pop up, seemingly overnight. Yep, that’s how things work around here. Buildings (and entire villages) come and go in the blink of an eye. Literally. In some (most) cities, art terminals gradually develop over time in a more organic fashion. Not where I live.
If you’ve ever been to Beijing’s 798 art district, it appears that SoFun Land’s objective is to bring a version of 798 to Shenzhen. So far, it seems like they’re doing a pretty decent job with this sudden creation. See pics below of SoFun Land (photo credit: Google images).
P.S. For all the artists out there (cough cough nudge nudge, mom), they have an artist residency for international artists in SoFun Land called “Jardin Orange”. Click the link below for more info. Mom, we could be neighbors. Just sayin'...
